"It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of St Alban's College Old Boy, Machaba Machaba (Class of 2000). He met his untimely death on Tuesday, August 14th and was laid to rest at Westpark Cemetery in Johannesburg on Thursday, August 23rd. Machaba will always be remembered as a brilliant mind with an unassuming soul. His academics, basketball and music shone the College light across the country and made us proud. Subsequent to his matriculation at St Alban's College in 2000, he completed his BSc in Electrical Engineering from Wits University, where he graduated Cum Laude. He later completed his Post Graduate Diploma in Management (Accounting Conversion) at the University of Cape Town, as well as completing his MBA at INSEAD in Singapore and France in 2009. He was working as a programmer at Amazon in Cape Town at the time of his death. He leaves behind his parents and two sisters. May his soul rest in peace and light perpetual shine upon him."
