JOHANNESBURG - A Westbury teacher who was killed when he and a friend drowned in the Rhodes Park dam in Kensington a week ago has been laid to rest.

Family, friends and pupils at the Westbury Secondary school have paid tribute to Zukisa Kela.

His fiancé who survived the attack by 12 men also attended.

Friends and family have hailed Kela as an avid Christian and diligent teacher.

Just last month Kela paid labola and was supposed to get married soon.

His fiancé managed to escape last week's attack while another woman was gang raped.
