The former football player of Zambia, Philemon Mulala, died at the age of 60 after being attacked by the dogs he kept in his own yard. The three aggressive dogs were merciless towards Mulala, who failed to defend himself and died.
Philemon’s wife heard the loud barking of the dogs, but did not pay much attention because the house is located near a busy street, so the dogs often barked at passing cars or pedestrians who were near the house.
When the woman wanted to find Philemon, she was shocked to see her husband’s body in the yard. Unfortunately, there was no salvation for the former football player.
In his career, Mulala has played for two major South African clubs – Kaizer Chiefs and Cape Town. In the jersey of the Zambian national team, he has played six matches in which he scored three goals, and he was part of the national team that triumphed in 1984 at CECAF, the oldest football tournament in Africa.
