On Saturday, January 7, the former Zambian international footballer, 60, was pronounced dead at the scene in Lichtenburg, South Africa.
The three dogs that attacked him on his back garden have since been removed from the property by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).
A police statement, read by spokesperson Sam Tsulanyane, described the circumstances in which his body was found by his wife. It read: “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.
‘After the electricity was restored [after loadshedding], she went inside looking for her husband, but could not find him.
‘Upon continuing with her search, the woman saw her husband lying motionless outside in the garden.

People who commented on the video suggested that the dogs may have used the shouts of the people around as fuel to continue, and that the only way to stop them was to knock them down.
