As everyone probably knows by now, Nelson Mandela is one of the most influential politician across the whole globe.
Alongside the help of other comrades, he took South Africa from being a country ruled by apartheid laws to being a democratic country where all those who live in it have equal opportunities to tackle this thing called life.
Well to the surprise of many, Mandela only served one term as President and it was widely expected that he'd choose the now President, Cyril Ramaphosa, as he's predecessor but instead, he chose to give that role to Thabo Mbeki in 1999.
It is said that Ramaphosa was so mad and felt betrayed at this decision that he ended up leaving politics completely and venturing into the business world.
Now without any further ado, let's checkout some of the reasons that made Ramaphosa quit politics and become a businessman, HERE'S THE REASONS BELOW:
01. He wanted to become a wealthy man and politics wasn't the correct route for that
02. There was a high possibility that he'd be President one day, so he just wanted to learn the economy more.
03. At that time, there were just too many people wanting to be President in the ANC, so he knew he stood little chance.
04. He felt betrayed by Mandela for not vouching for him with other NEC members to select him as President.
