Sophie Ndaba discharged from hospital

South African actress Sophie Ndaba found herself back in hospital again this past weekend, after a mishap on a golf course saw her break an ankle.

Ndaba, a diabetic, has been in and out of hospital several times in the past with as her highly publicised battle against the chronic illness played out too much speculation in the press and on social media.

Captioning a video taken from her hospital bed, Ndaba said she had thought that she was fine until she realised she had broken an ankle.

“Woke up in hospital. One minute I’m walking and one minute, I’ve got a broken ankle. I want to remind you that some storms are not there to break you, I think some storms are there to slow you down. Some storms are there to restructure you,” she said.

Ndaba said given all that he had been through in the past, a broken ankle did not seem like the worst thing to suffer as things could have been worse.

“When I looked at the process of the operation and the process of putting steel things in my ankle and the process of the cement and crutches being brought to me I realised life is a process.

“I’ve decided to embrace it because when I look at where I’m coming from I’m like dear Lord, what is a broken ankle?

“I still have my life, I still have my humour, and I still have so much to be thankful for, so I want to take this opportunity to thank God. It could have been worse,” she wrote.

Ndaba has in the past spoken out against being called an “ailing” patient, as it painted an unpalatable picture of her health struggles.

“It doesn’t matter how high- or low-powered you are.

“It does not give you the right as a journalist to write a mockery about a person who has trended for years, who has had many obituaries written about her, a person who every day wakes up and struggles with a killer disease that is diabetes.

“I’m a single mother and my children need me. I don’t need the stress,” she said. Telly Africa
