philimon-zandamelaFROM the Anorak Forums, Yampster tells the tale of Philimon Zandamela, Croatia’s number one Mozambique import:

The 34-year old Zandamela had a blood-alcohol level of 2.8 promille when he lost control of the moped. He crashed on karst and fell through it into a hole.

Rescuers pulled him out of the hole and took him to hospital with severe injuries. The daily Jutarnji list reported today his life was not in danger.

A history:

“Zandamela arrived in Croatia from Mozambique in 2001. He initially worked as a de-mining expert for the Israeli company Mavarin but has since become a shepherd. Zandamela is well known for his numerous performances on TV shows. Local residents also remember he shot himself twice in 2006 and drank sulphuric acid last year.”

A shepherd:

he had to be rescued after he followed his flock into a live minefield in Croatia, “I was walking along and I saw lots of strange bumps in the ground and suddenly realised where I was, luckily I had a mobile phone with me and could call the emergency services for help, I am very lucky to still be in one piece.

That’s him pictured with his cows – you know, those killer cows
