Not Even Apartheid Could Stop These 4 Black Men From Being Billionaires

As everyone probably knows by now, ever since Jean Van Riebeeck settled in the country from the 6th of April 1652, things were never the same because that's the day when colonization in the country started.

South Africa was under the apartheid until 1994 and it only ended because great men like Mandela, Govan Mbheki, Walter Sisulu and Oliver Tambo just to mention a few, decided to intervene and fight against the harsh laws that were placed on blacks. 

Those struggle heroes gave it all they had and fought back through blood, sweat and tears and ultimately, democracy was achieved. As of now, everyone has equal opportunities in the country.

While all blacks were hammered by the apartheid laws, there are those few individuals who became successful despite being restricted by harsh laws. They wanted to succeed so much so that apartheid didn't mean anything to them, they opened their business during apartheid and still managed to succeed.

Now without any further ado, let's checkout the black individuals who won despite being chained by the apartheid laws, see the names below:

Richard Maponya

Herman Mashaba

Matome Maponya

Thalente Goqo
