A STAR Zulu language teacher at a Pietermaritzburg high school, who was also a diehard soccer fan and pillar of hope in his family, died in a city hospital on Wednesday, six days after he suffered severe brain damage when he was hit by a taxi.

“He was among [the] only two black teachers at the school and a very hard worker. When he joined us in 1998 after completing his degree, he was also working for Athlone Primary,” said Carter principal Ashwin Ramgoolam.
