Tambat Jugah Anak Muyang[1] (born April 3, 1964) is an independent Malaysian politician from Sarawak. He is the representative from Lubok Antu.

Muyang was born on April 3, 1964, and is from Rumah Machau, Nanga Kumpang Engkilili, Lubok Antu, Sri Aman Division, Sarawak. He is the younger brother of Andrew Janggi Muyang who was also the Member of the House of Representatives from Lubok Antu since 1982 until his death in 1987. He holds a bachelor's degree in Human Resource Management.[2]

An independent candidate, he won Lubok Antu district in general election on May 10, 2018. He later joined People's Justice Party.[3] On June 5, 2020, he quit People's Justice Party and pledged support to Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin and his National Alliance.[4] Although many ex-People's Justice Party members joined United Indigenous Party, he did not join but remained as a pro-National Alliance independent lawmaker.
