A doping doctor at the Confederation of Africa Football, CAF, Dr Joseph Kabungo, died of heart attack at MKO Abiola Stadium on Tuesday.
This was according to his employer.
“Kabungo had a cardiac arrest when walking towards the team dressing rooms and collapsed on the floor.
“Both team doctors and other medical personnel administered CPR on him but after a while he was taken to hospital and that’s when the terrible news was confirmed,” Punchng quoted CAF Game Control Department as saying.
The deceased, a Zambian medical practitioner and former Mufulira Wanderers goalkeeper, also once served as Chongwe and Siavonga District Chief Health Medical Officer.
At UNZA his mates fondly called him, “Walter Zenga” after the Italian great goalie.
He reportedly died shortly after Ghana stopped Nigeria from qualifying for the 2022 World Cup on Tuesday.
