Vincent Mntambo might be South Africa’s humblest millionaire.
So, who is the mysterious man with a net worth of almost a $100 million?
Mntambo was still on school when he was dodging law enforcement for partaking in the 1976 Soweto students’ uprising.
His evading skills led him to be called the “master dodger”. He matriculated in 1977, then started working two-part time jobs to supplement his bursary.
He worked as a photographer throughout the day, and as a DJ at night. Mntambo managed to complete his law degree at the North-West University before doing his Masters at Yale University in Connecticut, America.
