Four years later Khumalo has faced yet another trying time and drugs nearly became her clutch. She tells the magazines; 
I thought I needed something to numb the pain. But what surprised me was that nothing in my mind or body had the craving. It also felt like I would be postponing the recovery if I did drugs. It was important for me to remain sober.

"I felt like journalists had been waiting for something like this to happen so they can feast on me. I was also a victim that day." 
She also expressed her reaction on the social media frenzy that followed the incident; 
"I stayed away from social networks. I knew I was going to be called names and be hated by people who have never even heard of me"
