Ms Zubeda Seedat at the the 1860 Heritage Centre and the ML Sultan family tribute to ML Sultan, said on this recorded video clip.
"The connection to the Sultan family dates from my grandfather’s days, my grandfather was Mohammed Ebrahim – Yunus, your father was named after my grandfather, your father’s name was Mohammed Ebrahim Sultan, did you know that?
So, we have this very long relationship – and just thought I’d just share a few personal anecdotes… my mother used to tell me that every morning ML Sultan used to come to collect my grandfather from Foundry Lane. He came to the building in Pine Street with a flight of stairs and Mr Sultan used to stand downstairs and shout from there “Bhai Mohamed I’m here” and my grandfather would go down to meet with him.
So there was this long association with the Sultan family – my mother wore a diamond ring on her finger and right up to the day she passed away that ring was still on her finger, and she used to relate this story that when she got married to my father, Mr Sultan came, Sultan Chacha as she used to call him, came and put this ring on her finger, and she always wore that ring.
I just thought I’ll share those few experiences that I recollect of Mr Sultan and his association with my family."
