Strive Masiyiwa Now Ranked 89th On The UK Rich List, Up From Number 159

Strive Masiyiwa Now Ranked 89th On The UK Rich List, Up From Number 159

Strive Masiyiwa is now ranked number 89 on the United Kingdom (UK)’s rich list, up from 159 last year.

Masiyiwa’s fortune has grown to £2 billion (US$2.5 billion), growing by £913 million (US$1.14 billion) over the past 12 months, according to the Sunday Times Rich List for 2022.

The Zimbabwean-born Econet group founder is reported to be Britain’s only black billionaire.

In an interview with the Sunday Times, Masiyiwa revealed that he was 12 when he first came to the UK.

He said his parents had managed to get the money to send him to Holt School, a boys’ boarding school in Edinburgh. Masiyiwa said:

I was crying. It was bitterly cold. They said, ‘You have to wear your kilt on Sunday.’

I looked at them and their bare legs, and thought, ‘This is it. I’m dead.’

Masiyiwa went on to live in Birkenhead in Wirral, Merseyside, where he sat for his Advanced Levels.

He later attended Cardiff University, where he studied engineering.

In 1998, Masiyiwa launched mobile telecoms company, Econet Wireless Zimbabwe, after a protracted legal battle with authorities for a licence.

Musanyeperwa nana motivational speaker vanonyepa kuti they started thei chicken projects with a further. kana vana plant 1 million cabbages and sell them for dollar each you will beba millionaire. Life is not that simple, it's a complex process. Background and backup matters most. These mbingaldo they never tell you the truth kuti vakaba kuti vatabge ma businesses avo or they are stealing together with zanu backup. Strive is clear akange and backup yakakwana his family were rich already that's why they afford him education in the UK. Zvo iwe woti unobva hako nyasi kwamupini wasvotoka, zvoti haube zvoti unotibgwana be zanu UTI busy kuti I want to be straight pazvinhu zvangu. ita tione kana zanu ikabvuma. In Zimbabwe youth have ideas to make money but politics is a stumbling block. unomboti hehehe handiite zve politics ndoita business chete hede kwana ....it time for you to be active in politics for better. otherwise you will end up being zanu member or you end up at prison zvadhaka. musanyebera vanhu imi va ABSA !!
