Especially in South Africa, politics is about money and who you know. Over the years, the heirs to a wealthy family have used their connections to improve their chances of becoming important people in the country.
Cyril Ramaphosa, the current President of South Africa, might seem like he works for the people, but he comes from one of the most powerful families in South Africa. But he and his well-known brother have made a lot of money from their businesses.
The Ramaphosa siblings were born and raised in Chiawelo, Soweto. They lived in a four-room house and had a good upbringing. They were able to change their luck because they worked hard. The head of state is always on the front page of every newspaper, and his brother, Douglas, is always in the news because he is a big deal in the business world.
We learned that Douglas Ramaphosa has a long history of education, as he has a Master's degree in social science. According to our sources, we would also be able to find out that he has worked in the business world for more than 30 years in a variety of management and board positions.
The well-known businessman has been in charge of many companies in the past, including Eskom Enterprises (SA), Transnet, Absa, and Anglo American, to name a few. Douglas Ramaphosa is the leader of Mnotho Group, Thusang Global Advisory, and Chakula Wote Africa. He also started all three of these companies.
Douglas Ramaphosa is also on the boards of Curro (the leading independent school network in South Africa), WESSA, and Stadia ( Wildlife and Environmental Society of South Africa). We also found out that he is on the board of the OR Tambo Leadership School, along with former South African President Kgalema Montlante.
