Two years ago, singer Rethabile Khumalo was in a car accident, but she is now ready to talk about it. People say that music can heal, so the singer thought it would be a good time to tell that story right before she put out new music.
Her mother, Winnie Khumalo, broke the terrible news that her daughter had been in a car accident. Winnie Khumalo shared the news on Twitter and said that her daughter was badly hurt.
“Hi friends. I would like to inform you that @Rethabile_rsa was in a car accident and she is badly hurt. Your prayers will be highly appreciated,” she tweeted.
Rethabile got the courage to talk about her accident, so she sent a Tiktok showing how the car she was in looked after it. She then showed her hurt face and how she was getting better.
She captioned the video, “Don’t be hard on yourself, rather give yourself the chance to heal and have hopes again! Your failures do not define you because you are bigger than them. Trust your abilities and let the hope bloom inside. You will do better in the future! FULL STORY DROPPING TOMORROW AND NEW SONG DROPPING ON THE 28th October.”

Her mother Winnie posted the same video with the same caption.
She told Daily Sun that she was covered in blood after the accident. She said that she was making new music at the time this happened.
“For a while I couldn’t move. As I lay there on the road, I kept praying, asking God to spare my life. I wasn’t ready to die. I was then rushed to hospital. Fortunately, none of my bones were broken. I had a blood clot in my right thigh, a few scratches on my face and a scar on my head.
“I still have a minor swelling on my thigh, but it’s going down. From what I understand, the car that hit me was beyond repair. I’ve seen pictures and it’s clear the accident was very bad. I don’t know how I survived. I know one of the victims is still in hospital,” she told the publication.
A year and a few months later, Rethabile got engaged. “…Today actually turned out to be one of the best days of my life because I said yes. I got engaged today. Oh my God, I am so happy,” said Rethabile in the video.
Her mother, her biggest supporter, congratulated her child on this massive achievement. “Congratulations my nunus on your engagement.”
We have seen a growing number of celebrities involved in car accidents. Just recently, big brother housemate Rico sSwavey lost his life after a ghastly car accident.
“Hello everyone, Rico Swavey is not disposed to handle his socials right now as he was involved in a ghastly accident and is currently on life support. While his situation is critical and doctors are on him, We implore your support and prayers,” his management tweeted.
