Best of 2021: Life after Jooste, Christo Wiese opens up.
Once one of the richest men in South Africa, Christo Wiese lost a large chunk of his fortune following the corporate fraud at Steinhoff. The company was a hugely popular stock with investors, with thousands (including Wiese) losing out. Wiese joined the BizNews Power Hour for a special 30 minute segment, with the SA business mogul spewing nuggets of knowledge and wisdom throughout. When asked how he feels about everything that has happened he said 'I had to look myself in the mirror. I saw 50 years of my work go up in smoke and I had to ask myself how I'm going to cope with it. I decided that I don't mourn the loss of money'.
