Karim Wade

The son of Senegal's former president Karim Wade was recently charged with corruption following a months-long investigation into how he amassed a fortune of more than $1.3 billion. Wade previously worked as a government minister after an appointment by his father, Abdoulaye Wade, named him to the post.
