Africa’s Youngest Billionaire, Mohammed Dewji, Kidnapped in Tanzania

DAR ES SALAAM – Africa’s youngest billionaire, Mohammed Dewji, whose wealth is reportedly worth $1.5 billion, has been kidnapped in Tanzania, official sources said on Thursday.

The 43-year-old businessman was kidnapped in the Tanzanian capital in the vicinity of the Colosseum luxury hotel, where he often goes to the gym, according to media reports.

Tanzania’s Minister of Environment January Makamba confirmed on Twitter that Dewji’s abduction had taken place.

Dewji, the 17th richest man in the African continent, owns the METL Group, which operates in a wide range of industries including trade, agriculture, financial services, and energy and petroleum, among others.
