Pebetsi, who’s expecting her second child, said she’s since been discharged from hospital.

“I rejoice and praise God because we’ve been discharged from hospital. We’re still in good health, including the baby,” she said.

“Material things can be replaced but life can be lost in a split second. But mercy said no. God reminded us of His power and protection, even when we’re not aware.”
