What about the American oligarchs, I wondered, people like businessman Richard Uihlein, who regularly distort U. If you are like most U. He lives in a mansion in Lake Forest, a hyper-opulent preserve north of Chicago.
The winner of that contest is likely to become South Africa's next president. President Jacob Zuma's term ends in 16 months, although there are pressures for him to go earlier amid corruption accusations. As an internal leader in the fight against apartheid, Ramaphosa is credited with organising miners into the country's biggest trade union.
He became ANC secretary-general and its lead negotiator in ending apartheid and in writing a new, democratic constitution. He then became a leading businessman in post-apartheid South Africa and is now deputy president of the party and the country. Despite his prominence, he has been described as a private, even enigmatic, person.
