Patrice Motsepe, South Africa — $2.9 billion

Motsepe is South Africa’s first and only Black billionaire, earning his fortune by building African Rainbow Minerals (ARM), which has interests in mining platinum, nickel, chrome, iron, manganese, coal, copper and gold.

In January 2013, Motsepe announced he will give away half the income generated from assets owned by his family to the Motsepe Family Foundation.
