4. Lord Mswati III, Swaziland
Evaluated total assets: At minimum $50 million
Africa’s last outright ruler is all the more outstanding for his associations with ladies (he had no less than 15 spouses at the last check), and for his flashy gatherings. He turned 46 as of late, with his birthday concurring with the Christian Easter occasions. Not willing to impart the spotlight to Jesus, King Mswati put off his birthday festivities for five days so that a legitimate national occasion could be held in his respect. American R&B craftsman Erykah Badu performed for the King amid the costly festivals, maddening a huge number of human right activists. Reason. His own total assets is at any rate $50 million, in light of the yearly $50 million pay that he is paid out of government coffers. He likewise controls Tibiyo TakaNgwane, a speculation holding organization that claims stakes in sugar refining mammoths Ubombo Sugar and Royal Swaziland Sugar Corporation (RSSC), dairy organization Parmalat Swaziland, spirits maker Swaziland Beverages and lodging network Swazi Spa Holdings.
