CAMPAIGN AGAINST DRUG ABUSE
1 February 2018
A GROUP of Dynamos supporters say they will host a campaign against drug abuse to try and help Denver Mukamba.
Fears are that the player, who has been thrown out by the DeMbare technical team, could fail doping tests if random tests are conducted in the Premiership.
Such a scenario could come with far reaching consequences for a career that is already going down the abyss.
Such an allegation has however not been proven.
Edmore Chingwende, a member of the Dynamos supporters group, said they saw it necessary to help the player and other footballers in the country.
“Denver is our child, and it pains us to see him go through this. We felt like he needs some kind of help in dealing with his drug abuse issues.
“We are planning on raising funds to help him if he needs financial assistance in terms of dealing with his issues,” he said.
“We are yet to communicate with his manager and the Dynamos management to hear if there is need for Denver to maybe get some form of help. Maybe he needs professional counselling or rehab,
“If that’s the case we will then intervene,” he said.
Chingwende added that their campaign will include a march, counselling and discussion sessions with footballers.
“We don’t want Denver’s situation to happen to any other footballer. We are therefore going to organise some counselling and discussion sessions with footballers.
“We intend to give them guidance in terms of how best they can manage their finances, why they shouldn’t abuse drugs or lead reckless lives.
“We intend to come up with projects that can help our players lead decent lives. We therefore urge the corporate world to join hands with us and help our soccer players,” he added.
The campaign launch date is, however, yet to be confirmed.
“We are yet to confirm the launch date because we want to discuss with Dynamos management first. Our meeting should happen next week if all goes well,” he said.
