- Precious Motsepe, the wife of Patrice Motsepe, made many sacrifices for the sake of her husband's success
- Precious, who is a qualified doctor, put her career on the backburner to help her man build his
- Her dreams were to conquer the field of medicine and help woman and children, but her children were the only ones who got her attention as it turns out
Precious Motsepe is the embodiment of the old adage, 'Behind every successful man is a strong woman' and her life right now is truly a testament to that. The beautiful wife of the billionaire mining mogul, Patrice Motsepe, has been the wife of any men's dreams as she set her aspirations aside to nurture her hubby's dreams.
According to various reports, the couple met when they were both very young and hopeful that they would go places. Precious, a medical student at the University of the Witswatersrand, had every intention of making her name known for helping women and children with their medical needs.
According to a Buzz South Africa article, Precious went on to obtain an MBBCH degree in 1987 and by 1989, she and Patrice were already a married couple. Despite her dreams of becoming a well-known medical professional, Precious decided that having and caring for her family was something even closer to her heart.
And so she dedicated more time and effort to her family and her marriage and naturally, her career took the backseat. It seems her sacrifices have not been in vain since she has now been married for almost three decades and has reached greater heights than she could ever imagine in both her career and home life.
Briefly News also reported that when you ask people in South Africa to name local billionaires, Patrice Motsepe's name will definitely come up. The mining magnate is one of the most well-known businessmen in the country but his private life remains, well, private.
Even with a nett worth of $3.1 billion - which is about R43 billion - Patrice Motsepe is not someone who lives a flashy life. The billionaire rarely shows off his wealth or gives Mzansi a peek inside his private life.
While Motsepe is well-known in the country, most people are only aware of his achievements and famous ties to the South African head of state, President Cyril Ramaphosa.
