Regardless of how powerful and famous you are, you’re never immune from health problems. No one knows this better than businesswoman and former Miss South Africa, Basetsana Kumalo, who’s had her share of misfortune.

In March this year, it was reported she had been hospitalised after falling, which resulted in her pulling out of the judging panel of the Miss South Africa pageant.

A statement released by the organizers at the time reads in part: “Miss South Africa regrets to announce that Basetsana Kumalo, one of the judges for this year’s Miss South Africa pageant, had an unfortunate accident at her son’s school after watching him perform in a concert.” It turned out Basetsana had fractured her ankle and needed surgery.

Sadly, her health woes are far from over. DRUM has exclusively learned that Basetsana is in a private Johannesburg hospital allegedly for “liposuction gone wrong”.
