“I feel thankful for the donation because it will help him a lot with medication,” she declared.

According to her, while her brother has been discharged from the hospital and his condition is listed as stable, he is experiencing high temperature at night and thus he will visit a private medical institution for further analysis.

She, said however, that she remains thankful that no major body part was damaged during the attack, which occurred in Stabroek Square and is hopeful for a speedy and complete recovery to enable her brother to return to the game he loves. She is also hopeful for the swift arrest of the perpetrator.

He expressed the hope that the player receives the necessary support from his colleagues and the fraternity in his recovery process.”
