The mix of well-wishes and criticism saw Sbahle’s name top the Twitter trends list for much of Tuesday.

Following the backlash Andile deleted the video from Instagram.

“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,” he wrote in a later post.

He said the video was meant to “inform the public of the great progress and recovery stage of her state” following social media speculation about her health which he said pained the family.

Sbahle was rushed to hospital in a critical condition after her car overturned and caught fire on Margaret Mncadi Avenue (formerly Victoria Embankment) in Durban on August 9.  Paramedics had to use Jaws of Life to remove her from the vehicle.

While initial reports claimed that Sbahle’s sports car was the only vehicle involved in the crash, her father Sbu Mpisane claimed he’d unearthed information that another vehicle may have hit the BMW causing her to lose control and hit a palm tree.

Late last month the family celebrated as Sbahle spoke her first words and ate her first meal since the crash.

“Right now she is doing well and her speaking is a testament to that. I know that she will continue to fight,” Sbu told TshisaLIVE at the time.
