BBC News – South Africa’s richest black man, Patrice Motsepe, has announced he is giving away half
his wealth to improve the lives of the poor.

The mining magnate said the money would be handled by the Motsepe Foundation to address
education and health issues.




He said he was inspired by the word’s two wealthiest men, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, who are
encouraging billionaires to donate to charity.

Mr Motsepe said he was also inspired by the spirit of “ubuntu” – an African belief system which
translates as “I am because you are”, meaning individuals need other people to be fulfilled.

Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
