A video showing two pit bull dogs attacking a man has gone viral on social media, with claims that it was footage of former Zambian footballer Philemon Mulala being mauled to death by his three dogs at Litchenburg.

People sharing the video also claim that it was Philemon Mulala who was mauled to death by his 3 dogs, including 2 Staffy-cross pitbulls and an unknown breed in South Africa.

However, the viral video claiming Philemon Mulala’s mauling by his own dogs has sparked a great deal of shock and sadness among the public. As a result, it is important that we uncover the truth behind this tragic incident and fact-check the information being shared.
