  1. i caution these black billionaires in Africa. This can also be a hit list for imperialists and globalists. Africa is ground zero for takeover and these vultures swoop in anywhere they smell money and will kill, steal, and destroy the industries these African billionaires have developed. They start with trade sanctions, embargos, say they are supporting terrorist groups, then choreographed uprisings of people and then will end up like Qaadafi. A word … to….. the wise.
