Unlocking the mystery to house number 48

Torn Apart: BOYD PHIRI
IN RELATIONSHIPS some people would say 48 is just but a number in reference to the age gap between partners. They say what matters is love.
In fact, most people in the hood would rather mind their own businesses than poke their noses into other people’s affairs.
But the same cannot be said of the number 48 linked to houses owned by an individual in Lusaka’s Chalala, which have attracted social media backlash.
The gap between the owner of the houses and some of us who are still struggling to build a one-room house in the hood is indeed wide, and as far as people in the hood are concerned, 48 is a big number.
Although the owner was trying to enjoy extra space than some of us in the hood in one-rooms, questions abound as to why suddenly no-one knows the owner of the houses alleged to be proceeds of crime.
