Africa is the biggest continent in the world with enough resources to make it richer than any other continent. However, the continent is a corruption haven and the resources are misuses, money stolen and held by a few individuals. Well, that aside, in this post we will talk about the top 10 Richest African Presidents as of 2019.
|1||José Eduardo dos Santos||Angola (Former president)||$20 billion|
|2||Mohammed VI||Morocco||$2.5 billion|
|3||Uhuru Kenyatta||Kenya||$650 million|
|4||Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo||Equatorial Guinea||$600 million|
|5||Paul Kagame||Rwanda||$500 million|
|6||Jacob Zuma||South Africa (Former president)||$220 million|
|7||Paul Biya||Cameroon||$200 million|
|8||Mswati III||Swaziland||$100 million|
|9||Idriss Déby||Chad||$50 million|
|10||Robert Mugabe||Zimbabwe (Former president)||$10 million|
Some of these Richest African Presidents gained their wealth from genuine business ventures, for example, Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta who owns Brookside, real estate ventures among others. Some African presidents though, we can’t say for sure but they are rich.
