American business magazine Forbes has finally published a list of top 20 richest people in Africa as of 2019, and surprisingly, no Kenyan billionaire features on the list. Nigeria’s magnate Aliko Dangote still maintains the top spot for the eighth year in a row. Another Nigerian Mike Adenuga who accumulates his wealth from oil and telecommunications business takes the second spot. South African billionaire businessman Nicky Oppenheimer who ranked second last year drops to number three.

Mohammed Dewji, 43, is the youngest billionaire in the list with an estimated net worth of $1.9 billion. The Tanzanian’s sources of wealth include manufacturing, agriculture, trading, finance, mobile telephony, insurance, real estate, transport and logistics, and food and beverages. All these under Mohammed Enterprises Tanzania Limited (MeTL), a commodities trading business founded by his father.

Othman Benjelloun, 86, is the oldest billionaire in the list with an estimated net worth of $1.7 billion. Othman who hails from Morocco has interests in banking and insurance.

Isabel dos Santos still remains the richest woman in Africa with an estimated net worth of $2.3 billion. The 45-year-old is a daughter to the immediate former president of Angola, Jose Eduardo dos Santos. Her investments interests include telecommunications, media, retail, finance and the energy industry.
