- South African media personality Sbahle Mpisane has shared that she is back behind the wheel
- This comes after the media personality survived a bear-fatal accident
- Mzansi social media users were happy for her for conquering the daunting task
Sbahle Mpisane has revealed that she was scared to drive after her near-fatal car accident two years ago.
The media personality has finally conquered her fear and took to the road recently. The trip was short but it was a huge step for Shauwn Mkhize’s step daughter.
Taking to Instagram, Mpisane posted a video of herself behind the wheel along with a lengthy caption:
"My car accident was on the 11th of August 2018. A year later was my return behind the wheel again. I spent the year sitting in the passengers sit so I can have a full view of all my driver & to see how they operated. For the longest time until early 2020, my only fear was being driven by another driver but I’ve completely overcame that awkward fear of my safety. To overcome that trauma in 2018 I decided to take the risk of driving myself whilst I was still wheel-chaired with my fixation metals on my right foot."
“Me: Trust me, I will do it, trust me! Trainer: Are you sure? Me: Yahhh. My trainer accompanied me for my first drive and his trust boosted my driving confidence. We safely drove around umhlanga & straight into Gateway Mall. Later in that month I drove into my crash site (several times) to regain the memory of my accident and to deal with my emotions. I remain grateful for my survival and your prayers "
Good on her!
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Sbahle Mpisane has come a long way on her road to recover from a terrible 2018 car accident.
The star broke multiple bones and was in ICU for weeks following the accident.
She's in a much better place and is extremely grateful to be alive.
Sbahle posted a few snaps showing her stay in hospital.
In one of the pics, the fitness bunny is seen hooked up to multiple machines with swollen eyes, barely hanging on to life.
She captioned the images simply with, "Today, I am thankful I have another day to live in this life."
Briefly.co.za reported that Sbahle revealed she had broken every bone in the solo crash.
Last year, Briefly.co.za took a look at her awe-inspiring road to recovery that's been nothing short of a miracle.
The beauty has made it clear that she will never give up on attaining a full recovery - no matter how long it takes.
Sbahle's step-mom, Shauwn Mpisane, has been by her side every step of the way.
The KwaMaMkhize stars shared Sbahle's first moments walking without crutches with elated fans two months ago.
