“And my sister for bringing me a present today. I love you guys, I love my parents so much and I love my brother for all the presents you brought for me. Thank you guys, thank you guys again,” she said on the video.

On Tuesday evening Andile shared a message on Instagram informing people that he took down Sbahle’s recovery video

“Kindly note I’ve taken down my sister (Sbahle Mpisane’s) recovery video on my page after some malicious attacks towards me, my sister and family. The video was to inform the public of the great progress and recovery stage of her state, after the tragic accident she had as people were gossiping all negative rumours on social media, newspapers about her which pains me dearly and my family,” he said.

Andile said Sbahle and their family were grateful for the support and prayers.
