But Mzansi has continued to egg her on, with individuals such as the faceless Good Samaritan BI Phakathi also stepping in a few months ago after meeting with Dlamini in Cape Town.
South Africa continues to rally behind her as she now reportedly prepares to embark on a trip to India for her medical treatment.
But heading online yesterday morning, Dlamini said the trip would be delayed as she wasn't feeling too well.
The tweet read:
"Good morning family, I haven't been feeling well since Saturday and thus also can't travel ... since it limits my chances of being approved to fly.
"So, I have checked into the hospital. I had to update all my worried family. I'll get better and leave soon. I love you."
In usual fashion, Mzansi social media users flooded Dlamini's mentions with hundreds of encouraging messages. The tweet attracted more than 8 000 likes.
