Even the Dutch up there in the Netherlands, where he is based, were demonstrably taken aback by how much bank Bob Van Dijk was raking in. This was because he was bagging more bags than every CEO in the European country. He made so much money from Naspers, owned by one of the wealthiest families in Mzansi, that his salary dwarfed the average Naspers worker, making it look like they were getting paid in peanuts and raisins.
His resignation caused Nasper’s share price to take a severe nose-dive, and many online believe he took a bow strategically. He reportedly sold R1.72 billion worth of his shares in Naspers. View the tweet here.
