Fitness fundi Sbahle Mpisane has responded after being branded a ‘murderer’. Rumours that labelled Sbahle as a killer emerged on social media on Monday.
This comes after Sbahle celebrated remembering lyrics to a Beyoncé song and a Twitter user responded by saying: “Sbahle had ‘brain treatment’ to remember Beyoncé lyrics but not how she killed a person. Oh hunny,” – @_Onezwa tweeted.
Taking to Instagram to write a heartfelt statement in response to claims that she killed a person. Mpisane also focused on her amnesia and her decision, after a car crash which left her in ICU last year, to leave behind relationships she once had
“With sadness I have watched, especially today, how I am vilified, brandished a “murderer” of an unknown passenger in my car and faking my amnesia. At first your words stung, but I felt no pain as my truth is known by God, the legal system and those that were the first responders to an accident scene I STILL have NO recollection of.” – Sbahle Mpisane said.
“What the naysayers & doom spreaders don’t realize is my daily struggle of regaining control of my life. Waking up from a three week coma asking my mom Shauwn, if she had informed Michelle (my high school receptionist) that I wasn’t going to come to school. I woke up from my coma thinking I had fell down the school stairs. The embarrassment of, to this day, not knowing some of the people I hung out with. My mom put me on a video call recently with Nomzamo Mbatha and I was SO excited that I personally knew “Nomzamo the actress”, not knowing she was a close family friend who months before my accident had put me up in her house in Cape Town. That’s my life. Continually piecing it day by day, triggers being a voice, a face or scents.” – she said.

Sbahle Mpisane further said: “I never faked my amnesia or not having recollection of my past relationships. Once I gained access to my phone and social media in December, I got exposed to the true nature of it all. I had to choose ME and walk away from anything and anyone that was of NO GOOD to my road to recovery. I thank God for the support of my family & friends(both reintroduced themselves to me), and the South African public, the amazing doctors at my disposal. Since January I have been going to brain treatment, daily, where I go on a brain stimulation machine for an hour, to stimulate my brain and that has helped me with my alertness & movements.
My mom has been my champion, motivating me to stay committed & sometimes sitting with me through that daily hour. I succumbed myself to the process and it has been of great value to me. So celebrating little milestones like Beyonce lyrics, is nothing compared to the darkness I was in. I will continue to celebrate & share on MY social media platforms because to me it’s an achievement, if to you it’s a source to attack on what you don’t know, God Bless you.” – Sbahle Mpisane said.
