He plays as a prop He started off his career with the Lions in the Super 14 competition, then he joined the Stormers for the start of the 2008 season before joining the Saints. He went to Peterhouse Boys' School in Marondera in Zimbabwe, along with the Sharks and capped Springbok Tendai Mtawarira. Despite having already played for the Springboks Mujati's test career was cut short when he was declared ineligible to play because he was not legally a South African citizen. He opted to join Northampton Saints to further pursue his rugby career. He is still a Zimbabwean citizen.

Away from the rugby pitch Brian has proved himself to be a more than capable blogger with his entries on Ruggavibe. The blog charts his thoughts and feelings as he makes the transition from a barman in Zimbabwe, then a Springbok in South Africa, and now a world class rugby player for Northampton Saints.

On 27 November 2012, Mujati would leave Northampton Saints to join French club Racing 92 for the 2013/14 season.[2]

In September 2015 Mujati signed with the Sale Sharks on a two-year contract.[3]
