He said: “The dog was gunned down today around 08:30 hours in PHI area near Mtendere compound.

The news comes weeks after Zambia was left mourning the loss of one of its former international football players, Philemon Mulala, after he was attacked and killed by his own dogs.

The 60-year-old is understood to have been mauled to death in Lichtenburg, South Africa, at around 3pm on Saturday, January 7.

He was discovered by his wife and later declared dead at the scene.

Police spokesperson Captain Sam Tselanyane said in a statement: "She did not bother to go and check what was wrong [when the dogs were barking] as their house is situated on a busy street and the dogs frequently barked at pedestrians and vehicles passing by.”

When his wife did eventually return inside she was unable to find Mulala.

Tselanyane continued: "Upon continuing with her search, the woman saw her husband lying motionless outside in the garden. She then went outside, only to find that the husband was bitten by their dogs."
