SEĒ || The SA billionaire who owns Checkers, ShopRite, OK and many more

It's common knowledge that Christo Wiese is among the richest persons in South Africa. He is worth billions of rand, or about $3 billion at current exchange rates, according to Forbes and other business journals.

Mr. Wiese is unquestionably more than a man; he is responsible for the development of tens of thousands of employment in the country and is one of those persons positively leading the way without any political links or a corruption scandal to his name.


To waste little time, here are some of the companies that Christo Wiese owns through his Shoprite Holdings stake: Mr. Wiese clearly controls several influential businesses around the country. Shoprite and Checkers are the two most well-known stores on the list.

Mr. Wiese plays a vital role in our country because he shows that we can achieve great things in the proper way, without resorting to corruption. We should hold Mr. Wiese in high regard.


Despite his continued success as a business mogul, at age 79, he decided to step down as chairman of Shoprite Holdings. Once again, I'd like to express my gratitude to Mr. Wiese for making us believe it was doable.
