According to Mwenda, Rubani was special, handsome like a Greek god, generous beyond limit, kind beyond description and nice beyond understanding.

Mwenda praised him for everyone who met him loved him adding that being around him was to be around happiness, relaxation, sophistication, greatness.
“He had class and yet acted simple. He was confident yet modest. Why leave us so early?” He eulogised him.
