Zambian journalist Anthony Mukwita was dumbfounded to walk into an almost complete house built by a stranger on his piece of land
The diplomat shared the news on Facebook, explaining that he had been out of the country for nearly 10 years when he walked back into the shock
Social media users told him to find the stranger and sell the land to him so that both make their investments worthy.
As much as he looked forward to a wonderful Christmas season, his mood was dampened when he went to visit one of his pieces of land and found that it had been grabbed.
Evidently, the unknown individual took advantage of his absence and not only took ownership of the property but also went ahead to start developing it.
The winner of the World Bank Investigative Journalism Award said that he and his wife Elaine had a rude awakening when they visited their land in the sprawling Kabangwe hood.
Netizens advise him to sell the land
Social media users told the former managing director of the Zambia Daily Mail to look for the owner and sell the plot to him so that both individuals do not lose their investments.
A few, however, opined that he stayed away from his land for so long that it looked abandoned thereby opening it up to repossession and grabbing.
