TweetThis! Top 20 Africa's Rich List - Fascinating!

When I read the figures in this list, the easiest word that came in mind was, 'fascinating!'

I just can't believe that there are people dying of hunger and diseases and yet, there are billionaires flourishing around the neighborhood.

Why this much gap? What is it that we are doing (or not doing if that suits) to not be able to accumulate enough to see us through in, at least, a month?

How possible is it to accumulate this much money? What is all this wealth for?

Life is like a puzzle! I have mine waiting to be assembled. Good luck on yours!

And they do think about the future?

You forgot a couple-not forgetting the natural-human resource un-utilised/misused but exported wholly!
Though most of them have always proved a worth-We have long accessed and would love to evaluate all gains against odds over time in their presence as we see what they have in effective-realisation/PLAN.

On one honest meeting with validity-it is leaders who dislodge their followers,not forgetting how the people un-employ themselves while affecting innocent others heavily thus depression(s).

Take care folks-Afrika is under control.

They are most probably pending for the best.

I agree with you, especially on the 'exploitation' part, just because most of those in this list have accumulated wealth, acquired it in shad ways. I bet they are not honest enough to disclose how they got all this wealth. They won't dare to share with other fellow citizens on 'ways to become rich'. Certainly they can not tell us that it's work only that has done them this much reward (that has to be real "WORK" which unfortunately, majority of us do not get to participate in).

I think it's a shame to have all that money while having workers devoting their time and effort at work hoping to at least get a raise of some sort, but all that get to be written in their review file at the end of a quarter/year is all the negatives they unintentionally did, (if you are lucky) you get a borderline positive 's/he is a good worker'.
