According to local testimonies following the death announcement, the Cardinal has left an inspiring and enduring legacy in education. The São Tomás University of Mozambique, based in Maputo City, was founded under the close watch of the Cardinal.

He is also recognised for his tireless efforts at encouraging peace in the country, particularly when it was engulfed in a civil war.

Cardinal Alexandre José Maria dos Santos, O.F.M., was born on 18 March 1924 in Zavala, Diocese of Inhambane, Mozambique. He attended the minor seminary of the Franciscans in Amatongas, in the central zone of Mozambique. He was then sent to Nyasaland, today known as Malawi, to study philosophy. This was because at the time, a major seminary did not exist in Mozambique.
