    Nicky Oppenheimer, Chairman, De Beers Group
    Africa means business. The past decade has seen an enormous number of mega-corporations emerge on the continent. However, a vast number of these companies are run by foreigners. For example, SABMiller, the world’s second largest beverages maker, is led by CEO Graham Mackay, an American. The head of AngloGold Ashanti (AU), the world’s largest gold producer, is Mark Cutifani, an Australian national. Safaricom, East Africa’s largest telecoms provider, is run by Bob Collymore, a Guyanese.

    However, a new league of African businessmen is emerging. They are bold and fearlessly ambitious, building pan-African companies with regional and even global presences. They are influencers and change-makers. Their voices are never ignored within Africa’s business and political circles, and through their resolutions and actions, they shape the economic future of the continent. Here are the 20 most powerful men in African business:

    Hana pesa yoyote Mengi katika watu wenye fedha Tanzania. Kama angekuwa ana fedha asingekuwa anawalipa wafanyakazi wake wa Guardian na Radio One mshahara mbuzi kiasi kile. Tatizo Forbes wanatumia vigezo ambavyo wengi hatujui ila tunashabikia tu.

    Labda ana pesa ya kujirusha na Jack Ntuyabaliwe lakinia si pesa ndedu. Huyu si ndo kadhulumu hela za wanahisa wa NICO? Halafu yeye si ni kati ya wale waliiifilisi iliyokuwa NBC?

    Nadhani huko Forbes una log in then unajaza kwenye website yao mali unazofikiri unazo
