A source close to the player confirmed to Phakaaathi Plus that Rapatsa had been living a quiet life and avoiding media attention since he retired.

“He is soon to become a pastor. He is very religious, and has kept his life private although people still want to take photos with him when they see him,” said the source.

Rapatsa also confirmed this to Phakaaathi last weekend when we asked for an interview.

“I am soon to be a pastor, and so am no longer allowed to talk about my past life. I would have loved to, but I can’t,” he said.
