The Rugby Club That's Owned By 2 SA Billionaires: Motsepe & Rupert

As everyone probably knows by now, Patrice Motsepe and Johann Rupert are few of the wealthiest individuals we have in South Africa. According to Forbes and Bloomberg, they have a combined net worth of a whopping $11 billion, which is is gazillions when converted to the rand currency.

For the most part, Johann and Motsepe haven't really done much business together. There's obviously been mutual respect on both sides but for the major part of things, they haven't really did much business together.

They are two kings who dominate in their specific fields. Motsepe is in the Mining sector, while Johann is in the investment sector and luxury.

The only time we're sure that Motsepe and Rupert sit on the same boardroom is during boardroom meetings at Blue Bulls. YES! you've read that right, Motsepe and Rupert probably have discussions together about the popular Rugby club, Blue Bill's. 

Well that's because each of them owns a 37% stake in the former Currie Cup champions. Combined, they have a controlling 74% in the club.
