Sbahle had a road accident at about 4 AM on the 9th of August 2018. She lost control of her car and hit a light pole before crashing into a tree.

Sbahle Mpisane Controversy

During her time in hospital, Sbahle received so much love and care from family and friends. However, when her brother Andile Mpisane shared a video of her progress, it caused an outbreak of disturbance on social media.
 The video received a lot of mixed reactions from the public. While some people were glad to see that the fitness instructor was pushing through and on a promising road to recovery, others felt that the video was unnecessary and that Sbahle should be left alone to heal in private. This prompted Andile to take down the video.
 A day later, the family also came out to say they were distancing themselves from the video. The family had no clue that a video of their daughter was to be taken and placed on social media without their consent. They also released a statement where they detailed they had no clue of such a video of Sbahle going up on social media.

Late last year the fitness bunny dropped a bombshell on the TL that no one saw coming. Out of nowhere, as everybody also thought Sbahle was busy with her recovery, She said she knew who had caused her accident. This sent shockwaves across social media as people kept prompting Sbahle to reveal who it was. Despite the confession, Sbahle vowed to not reveal the identity of the individual.

She took to her Instagram stories to reveal some very startling details about the incident; which almost cost her her life and has temporarily left her in a wheelchair.
