Khan says Hafiz Sahib left Fiji three weeks ago to spend extended family time with his children in Australia.

He was visiting Christchurch, New Zealand, with his wife, at the invitation of friends and well-wishers.

Khan says Hafiz Musa Patel was a highly respected member of Fiji Muslim League and served selflessly as an Imam, teacher, mentor, and was much sought after as a powerful orator and speaker.

He leaves behind his wife, three daughters and two sons.
