In this issue

Our coverage of Africa's wealthiest continues, as we bring you the continent’s billionaire movers and shakers: also look who has made a comeback on the 2o23 list! In what was a defining 2022, how did the continent’s industry titans move the needle of development? Who were the winners, who were the losers, and whose billions fell away? The February-March 2023 edition of FORBES AFRICA is also a must-buy for young leaders looking to the older cohorts for inspiration and advice. There's plenty of it in this issue, as we introduce FORBES AFRICA’s 50 Over 50 list – our first-time compilation of 50 women over the age of 50 scaling newer heights and inspiring the next cadre of leadership on the African continent. From business tycoons to technocrats, founders to CEOs, and activists to entertainers, they have broken barriers throughout their impactful careers and tell us how. They are either making history or writing it. My other personal favorite in this issue is the story on how record numbers of women are learning to use firearms in crime-riddled South Africa. Training starts with the legalities of owning a firearm, which to most, is probably the most effective tool to disarm attackers, and also an introduction to the sport of shooting. Also in this issue, some path-breaking entrepreneurs in precision healthcare, like the good doctor from Rwanda with an eye for AI. All this and more in this landmark February-March 2023 edition of FORBES AFRICA!
