“The one pedestrian was knocked over in George. Another one got killed in a motor vehicle accident in Observatory. In Sunningdale, in Fish Hoek, also another pedestrian knocked over and in Lingelethu West, also in the Cape Metro, another pedestrian got killed in a motor vehicle accident. Then in the West Coast in Clanwilliam also another pedestrian killed in a motor vehicle accident,” says Africa.
