the list is speculative. Obiang Nguema is rich but not that rich even if he stole ALL equatorial guineas wealth for 20yrs it wouldnt come to 65 billion.

MOI is not that rich either. also some people are missing from that list there is a guy called mzee fula ngenge (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andr%C3%A9_A._Jackson) also jean pierre bemba and hes family

dos santos of angola and afew other angolan generals

I cant see Ronald Mengi the TZ media mogul and the Kenyattas. And i doubt Museveni is worth that much. There was an ealier list done by Forbes and the Nigerian owner of Dangote come tops. Anyway, food for thought.

There's no way in hell any AFrican is worth $65 billion (even Obiang) whose only money comes from the oil concessions that those private companies are giving him (& I doubt they are giving that fool that much money; they know he's an idiot).

Annon:
Why are you saying that Moi isn't that rich? I heard Amos Wako is worth about $100 million dollars. So, if WAko is pulling in that much, Moi could be worth about $1.2 billion.

Uhuru told a BBC reporter that he was worth about $10 million dollars. I think it's probably around $400 million.

I want to know how much some of those brokers are worth, especially firms like kestrel

Obiang might be overstated but could Obiang=Gabon?

Sort of like the Sultan of Brunei = Brunei?

Of course, the wealth of most of these guys is stolen so unlikely to be easily quantified...

Mohammed Khalil Osman (1.2 billion)is also on this list, he is Anis Haggars partner
