Datuk Lokman Musa

I can vaguely remember Datuk Lokman Musa. I was between 9 and 11 years old when I met him in Sabah. He was in the Education dept as I recall. He is Mahadzir Lokman's father and a close friend of my late father. They were working on the Malaysian Education stuff (or similar) in 1967-1969. I was attending Tanjong Aru Primary School in Jesselton, Sabah. My father taught at Gaya College, a teachers' college, just before the township of Likas.

Below is Datin Nina Khatijah, Datuk Lokman's wife, with Mahadzir (baby). When I met the family, they were living at Tanjong Aru Govt Qtrs, Jesselton, Sabah near the beach, by the South China Sea. Mahadzir was in my elder sister's class. My mother taught his sister (deceased). Another younger sister (Neil) was in my younger brother's class.
