CAPE TOWN - A friend of one of the victims who was shot and killed at a Hawston biker rally last weekend says he is still shocked at how his friend died.

Biker Rudi Salo and 19-year old Randy Burgess were laid to rest in separate funerals on Saturday in the small town near Hermanus.

Hundreds of mourners attended the two vastly different ceremonies,

Burgess' funeral was a quiet and sombre one, and Salo's a celebratory and noisy event which dozens of bikers attended.

Lorenzo Isaacs, a fellow biker, has described Salo as a peaceful man.

"His smile will be lost forever now. And we've made peace with death but the way that it happened, that's what's heart-sore and that's what is difficult to accept, not for a person that lived like he did. He lived in peace with everybody."

No arrests have been made yet and police are still investigating the incident.
