Strive Masiyiwa is a London-based Zimbabwean billionaire businessman and philanthropist. He is the founder and executive chairman of the international technology group Econet Global.

Born: 1961 (age 60 years), Rhodesia

Nationality: Zimbabwean

Net worth: 1,4 billion USD (2021)

Spouse: Tsitsi Masiyiwa

Most people first heard about the name Strive Masiyiwa for the first time, when the president addressed the nation last week. He thanked certain companies and individuals who contributed towards the vaccine and among those, was Strive Masiyiwa.

Just like any of us, the man struggled to be where he is today. He prayed, he approached the government and he approached investors. He struggled to get licence from Zim Government to start his telecommunication business, ECONET. He struggled to get investors to get him off the ground. https://briefly.co.za/71059-strive-masiyiwa-age-children-wife-church-businesses-house-private-jet-net-worth.html

Here he is today, counted among the world billionaires. If you go through his tweets you will see verses from the bible or business advice quotes.

He is doing so much for Zim and the world through Tsitsi Masiyiwa Foundation. Strive is a philanthropist. A humble African worlth man. He puts Zimbabwe and Africa on the world map

This is in addition to what the regional bloc, the African union and individual countries are sourcing. AU Special Envoy on COVID-19, mobile communications mogul Mr Strive Masiyiwa has said one billion doss of vaccines are expected by December 2021 as the continent targets to vaccinate 60 percent – or 750 million - of its 1, 2 billion population https://southerntimesafrica.com/site/news/more-vaccines-for-sadc-countries
