“We want him to be a role model to other youngsters. His move to go for rehabilitation shows that he is serious about fighting drug and substance abuse.”
Mutarisi says he will continue assisting the 26-year-old to get his career back on track.
“I will always support him because of his talent. He has become part of our family and we can’t afford to dump him now.
“We will continue to monitor him so that he becomes a role model to other youngsters.”
