"A case of culpable homicide was opened and the process of identifying the deceased is ongoing," said Ngoepe.


He said motorists are advised to drive with caution, especially during the night.


"There might still be some barricades on some of the roads and because of the volatility of the situation, the possibility of stones being thrown at passing vehicles from the bushes cannot be ruled out," said Ngoepe.


Ngoepe confirmed that six other cars were damaged by people throwing stones from the bushes on Tuesday.


"Cases of malicious damage to property were opened. No arrests have been made yet," said Ngoepe.


Police continue to maintain a heavy presence in the area after residents shut down the area as part of the ongoing demarcation protest.
