Bahumi Mhlongo, who is the daughter of Somizi Mhlongo has recently revealed that she is living with an incurable disease and has finally accepted herself the way she is.
It looks like the young lady who recently stole our hearts has a lot of issues to deal with but tell you what we love her and we are here to support her.
It hasn’t been long since the aspiring actress revealed that she has become a laughing stock because her father is gay. Two months ago she went through the most brutal cyberbullying as social media questioned her sudden excessive weight loss.
With no doubt it made Bahumi feel uncomfortable to an extent that she took a break from social media, however, she is now back and is ready to face all her fears and it seems like she has learned to accept things that she can’t change.
The 24-year-old who recently starred on Lebo Mathosa’s biopic shared with us beautiful pics of herself and she captioned them as: “Being herself was her truest form of worship.”
Here are the pics below, take notice that for the first time Bahumi showed us her legs.

If you had looked closer at the pic you’d realised that her legs and hands were are not the same size. Even fans noticed it and had to question her, it was then revealed that she lives with a disease called Lymphedema, also known as lymphoedema and lymphatic edema.
Lymphedema is a long-term condition where excess fluid collects in tissues causing swelling. The illness is typically caused by a blockage of this system. Lymphedema commonly affects one of the arms or legs. It’s incurable, but with the right treatment, it can be controlled.
The condition can be inherited or can be caused by a birth defect, though it is frequently caused by cancer treatments and by parasitic infections.
We’re glad she has taken the first step, we trust that she’ll get stronger by day and we know she has all your support.
