Wealthy businessmen and women can now be found in Nigeria, Egypt and Kenya and they’re among the richest in the world.

South Africa’s 10 richest men and women are also profiled in the January and January/February 2012 issues of Destiny and Destiny Man.

The Rich List, compiled by Intellidex, was determined by looking at the super-rich and their role in growing and owning companies. Specifically, the magazine gained net worth information from publicly traded companies, i.e. companies listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.

What’s most inspiring about these local super-wealthy individuals is that almost all of them have increased their net worth from 2010 in the face of a challenging economic downturn. In addition, many of their names featured prominently on the 2011 global rich list. Further north on the continent, the richest man in Africa – for the first time - is Nigerian Aliko Dangote, whose fortune is estimated at almost R80-billion.
