Tribute - Somkhosi 'Sam' Malaba

It is with a sense of real sadness and sorrow that the Peterhouse community received, following a long illness, the news of Somkhosi ‘Sam’ Malaba’s passing in Harare on Thursday 30 July.

Long-time champion and supporter of Peterhouse, Sam Malaba (Grinham 74) was highly regarded as a banker, having served as a former Deputy Governor of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, and Chief Executive Officer of Agribank. Within the Peterhouse Group of Schools, Sam served as Chairman of the Peterhouse Finance Committee and was a longstanding member of the Executive Committee and the Board of Governors. His passion for the school was exemplified by the years he devoted to serving this community. As a knowledgeable and passionate rugby supporter, Sam was always willing to voice his views on the beauty of the game. In the words of Howard Blackett (Rector 2013 – 2019), “Sam was highly regarded by the Peterhouse community. His financial expertise was invaluable, not least given the challenges Zimbabwe faced over the years, but also in his unstinting support/commitment to Peterhouse”.

Sam Malaba will be remembered as a trail-blazer, both at Springvale House and Peterhouse, and for his fearless approach to life. His courage, integrity, and wisdom, underscored his influence on Peterhouse. His legacy will be long-lasting given his service to the school. He is a true, and great, gentleman and Petrean.

To Joyce, Nothando (PHG 04), Mandla (Grinham 09), Nomkhosi (PHG 17), and the whole Malaba family, we extend our deepest sympathies and condolences at this very difficult and sad time.

Gosho and Calderwood Park Translocations 2020

Some translocations from Imire Game Park into our parks took place recently and all went smoothly. Gosho Park received a zebra stallion bringing in some new blood and he has been called ‘Stripes’.

We also brought some new zebra into Calderwood Park which will add to our numbers. Some blesbok were introduced into the park – the open vleis should suit them so it will be interesting to see how successful they are. A small herd of impala were released and hopefully their numbers will increase in December.

Our miombo woodlands and the open vleis and topland grazing provide good habitats and it is always exciting to get new animals to make our parks more interesting.

Statement on Discrimination 2020

As communities around the world grapple with the complexities of an emerging new order, we have, in recent weeks, been reminded of the stark reality of an older order, one in which prejudice and injustice exist. Our world was turned upside down by the outbreak of Covid 19, and many of our realities have been challenged; none more so than by recent events in the United States and the death of George Floyd.

The beauty of challenge is that it promotes introspection, and hopefully positive change. This is certainly the case at Peterhouse. As a Group of Schools we recognise the significance of this time, and of the many injustices that are playing out in communities and society.
