As soon as the master of ceremonies announced that Sarah

gathering referring to him as a trustworthy man who could not be swayed by
bribes or threats.
Kawempe North MP Latif sebaggala told the mourners that Sheik Muzaata was a good adviser to the Parliamentary Muslim group and among
the things he was keen on was the introduction of Islamic banking.

Cue out: .. mpola akamyu naakuwa ente,”//
Hassan Magoba a family member says that in addition to being
a trustworthy person, Muzaata was good at uniting his family members and it
would take long to get his replacement.
// “cue in: eksiooka abadde ..
Cue out: .. naagamba nti munsonyiwe,” //
Ibrahim Musa Mayanja his former student says that Muzaata
was not only a good teacher but also a good preacher whenever he took to the
pulpit to preach about the Islamic faith.
