Gospel singer Hlengiwe Mhlaba is recovering from injuries sustained in a car accident in Melmoth, KwaZulu Natal this Saturday.
The 45 year old was travelling with a colleague to Mpumalanga for a show. Hlengiwe’s spokesperson, Nkululeko Khanyi spoke to Isolezwe and pleaded with fans to be patient during this stage.
“Hlengiwe was travelling with a colleague, heading to another gig in Ermelo, Mpumalanga. A car that collided with theirs, drove straight into the car that Hlengi was travelling in, a white Mercedes Benz GL 320 CDI, of which she had just bought on Thursday,” Nkululeko said.
He further stated that it was heavily raining that day and because of that the road was slippery, which caused the car to lose traction and rollover three times.
“If it wasn’t for the seat belt and airbag, it would have been a different story for Hlengiwe,” he explained.
Fans have taken to Social Media to wish Hlengiwe a speedy recovery as well as offer prayers. The Rock of Ages singer is believed to have come out of hospital and recovering at home at this time.
