He made it to tertiary, where only a few have managed to make it. Malegasa attended the University of Limpopo, Turfloop Technical and moved to the University of the North as he was a partaker of improving on both Maths and Science in 2003 so that he could fulfill his desire in studying Water and Sanitation.
