Businessman Longwe Ndlovu is said to be funding Mutuma.
According to Sunday News Sport, the 50-year- old Ndlovu and a Bosso Life Member is a former policeman.
"We were discussing with other supporters at the Highlanders Club House on how to improve our strike force.
"The treasurer told me that financially, they could not afford to sign Mutuma. I have always liked Mutuma, I know he is a good striker, I don't doubt that," said Ndlovu.
According to Ndlovu, Mutuma negotiated first with Highlanders, agreed on a signing on fee before the player also inked a deal with the benefactor. Without revealing much, Ndlovu said there are also concealed gains for Mutuma based on his performance.
"There is a contract between Mutuma and myself for one year. I cannot reveal much but there are also hidden benefits for him based on performance. I am just a member of Highlanders, I don't want anything in return," said Ndlovu.
Ndlovu said he has looked after Highlanders players in the past without making it known.
