“We were shocked and saddened to hear this morning that a commuter was killed yesterday after being involved in a collision with a minibus taxi on the corners of Prince George Drive and Vrygrond Avenue near Muizenberg,” said Pedal Power Association (PPA) chairman Steve Hayward.
“We understand that a case of culpable homicide has been opened. We further understand that the passenger on the same bicycle was taken to Victoria Hospital for medical treatment and is currently in a stable condition.”
As a protest against the incident, the PPA coordinated a silent protest
on the morning of Saturday 6 April
at the scene of the incident, and erected a ghost bicycle on the scene (see pics on our Facebook page).
