    #1 in Nigeria
    The Nigerian businessman's fortune surged 557% in the past year, making him the world's biggest gainer in percentage terms and Africa's richest individual for the first time. The catalyst was listing Dangote Cement, which integrated his investments across Africa with his previously public Benue Cement; it now accounts for a quarter of the Nigeria Stock Exchange's total market cap. Already the continent's biggest cement maker, he has plants under construction in Zambia, Tanzania, Congo and Ethiopa and is building cement terminals in Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast and Liberia, among other places. Dangote, who recently bought himself a $45 million Bombardier aircraft for his birthday, has been shuttling back and forth to London for months, in anticipation of a public offering there later this year. Dangote began his career as a commodities trader; built his Dangote Group into conglomerate with interests in sugar, flour milling, salt processing, cement manufacturing, textiles, real estate, and oil and gas.

    The ‘forever' part of the diamonds story don't seem to be rubbing off on the fortunes of De Beers. The world's largest diamond producer, owned by Oppenheimer, has seen a choppy ride in the last couple of years. Buyers took flight in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis and are now slowly coming back led by developing countries such as India and China. The company cut costs aggressively last year and has been selling off some of its assets in 2010, a year that it said was better than expected.Oppenheimer quashed speculation in January that he was divesting the family's 40% stake in De Beers to Anglo American, which already owns 45% in it. The Oppenheimer family, in turn, owns 2% in mining giant Anglo American, founded in 1917 by grandfather Ernest. Passionate conservationist, owns Tswalu Kalahari Reserve, largest private game reserve in South Africa.

    The heading is misleading, it should have perhaps read; The billionaires of Africa who earned their riches through legal means. This qualification is important because there a number of billionaires in Africa who would not disclouse their richness because it was obtained through illegal means. A case in point Mubarak, who is thought to be over 53 billion U.S.A dollars.

    Has anyone noticed the trend that most of these dollar billionaires have inherited their wealth, and used that to make more money... what am saying is that if most African countries revised the interest they charge when borrowing money and encouraged the public to borrow from banks and other lending institutions, we would have more billionaires around. Shida yetu kubwa ni hawa wanasiasa wetu wa kipuzi ambao wanapoingia bungeni wanasahau kabisa walipotoka na hawataki kulegislate vitu ambavyo vitamsaidia mwananchi wa kawaida, wanajifikiria wao peke yao.

    hapo nimekusoma. Hata Mh. Rostam Aziz aliwahi kuliambia gazeti moja (Tanzania Daima) kuwa Tsh 185 Billion ilikuwa ni mapato yake ya miezi 3 kutokana na biashara zake, sasa hata asionekane hapa!!??? Pia fikiria mtu kama aliyekuwa rais wa Misri Bw. Mubarak, US $ 69B mbona hajawa listed! Maana Mzee Kamuzu Banda aliwahi kusema kuwa "PESA NI PESA HATA IKITOKA KWA SHETANI", kwa maana hiyo hata kama ni za rushwa ni utajiri tu so long as mtu anazimiliki. ...au ni vinginevyo!!??
