    Speaking of Africa and billionaires, here's a history tidbit that's rather interesting-
    "This 14th-Century African Emperor Remains the Richest Person in History: Forget today’s tech billionaires, the wealth of Mansa Musa of Mali was too vast to be imagined—or equaled."- (History Channel)
    ********
    Estimated net worth? 400 Billion dollars. His Empire would have included parts of modern Ghana...the same Ghana where Melania Trump visited a hospital and was holding "poor" babies. The irony of history...

  • Paul Iannello

    pay um what they want...he'll be home by next week......

  • Gwa Khaotrakul

    Smell like this story has some backgrounds, may be profit or conflict between this billionaire and ....?
    Hoping that he'll be fine.

  • Mike Barrington

  • Toshiro Hitsugaya

    Condolences?

  • Pingy

    I guess he didn't see that one coming since the hotel manager was apparently in on it.

    Article-
    "Dewji is also the first Tanzanian to join the Giving Pledge, a commitment by billionaires to help address society's most pressing problems by promising to give more than half their wealth to charity."

    Wikipedia-
    "As of 2018, the pledge has 184 signatories, either individuals or couples, from 22 different countries. Most of the signatories of the pledge are billionaires, and their pledges total over $365 billion. It does not actually dictate that the money will be spent in any certain way or towards any particular charity or cause, and there is no obligation to actually donate any money."

    What???

  • P'Thizikil

    The title "youngest" hardly seems relevant when talking about a 43-yaer-old man. I expected him to be 12 or so.

  • Prophet With Honor

    Most billionaires are 98-99% paper and 1-2% liquid. Any ransom over a million will take time to arrange.

  • Red dog

    Again why should I care?wWe have children dying in Chicago why should I care about what happens in Africa with billionaires ?

  • TexWho

    Well at least he no longer has to worry 'bout a republican fueled global economic meltdown.

    "Dewji is also the first Tanzanian to join the Giving Pledge, a commitment by billionaires to help address society's most pressing problems by promising to give more than half their wealth to charity."

    Maybe the kidnappers are from the Giving Pledge and collecting their half.

  • Oh Really Now

    Whew! I was afraid it was my friend the Nigerian Prince.

  • Prophet With Honor

    You mean those ****hole countries have billionaires?
    Tell Trump!
