Family of Africa’s youngest billionaire is offering a massive reward after his kidnap

A one billion shillings — or $440,000 — ransom is being offered by the family of kidnapped Tanzanian businessman Mohammed Dewji.

The 43-year-old is ranked as Africa’s youngest billionaire by Forbes magazine, which puts his worth at $1.5 billion.

Dewji, who also goes by Mo, was abducted by a pair of gunmen outside his gym on Thursday, according to CNN, which also reports that the kidnappers entered the hotel housing the workout facility through a gate “left open deliberately.”

Police claim to have received no ransom note from the kidnappers, but they say they have arrested roughly 20 suspects believed to be connected to the abduction.

“The family would also like to assure any person(s) giving information that all of this will remain strictly confidential and shall stay solely between person(s) and the family,” CNN quotes a family spokesman as promising.
