“Doctor Themba Bucibo, 56, was run down by a vehicle on [Saturday] evening on the R26 between Frankfort and Villiers,” Sergeant Philani Mvuna said.
Despite paramedics attempts to resuscitate him, Bucibo died at the scene, Mvuna said in a statement.
The doctor was on his way home to Gauteng.
Mvuna said Bucibo allegedly parked his vehicle next to the road and crossed it in order to “relieve himself.”
“While he was in the middle of the road, on his way back to his vehicle, he was struck down by a grey Jetta IV.”
The R26 route between Frankfort and Villiers was narrow and was undergoing major construction, he said.
Police were investigating a case of culpable homicide. -Sapa
