Sanele was allowed to go home after spending four months in the hospital.
According to OKMzansi, Sanele's mother, Sbongile, said that he cannot do anything for himself.
She has to wash and bath him, get him dressed and help him when he needs to use the toilet.
"Nokuthula has ruined our lives."
The mother added her son has to eat porridge and have soft drinks because she can't afford to buy any other healthier food options.
They are also being kept in the dark about the case, says Sbongile. They do not know if there is any progress being made with the investigation.
She feels that her son's future has been ruined by the accident. She added that she won't have peace until the actress was 'punished' for what happened.
The Uzalo actress has been relatively quiet about the whole matter.
