A man has been hailed for proposing to his lover at the site of the house they are building together, a romantic move that will forever be etched in their hearts.
The journey began when Raphael Phiri Jr and his girlfriend embarked on a project to build their home, an endeavour known to be financially challenging.
While the house would not only serve as their future home but also symbolize their unwavering love and dedication to one another, it cast a dark shadow on the potential for a wedding.
