Christo Wiese | Biography
Christo Wiese has never shied away from a risky business deal. Since acquiring Pep Stores, he has built an impressive business empire which includes Shoprite and a number of other companies. He has tried his hand at politics and has bought diamond mines, banks and wine farms. Fifty years of risk-taking in the business world paid off and made him the richest man in the country - until he overplayed his hand with Steinhoff and lost a huge part of his fortune.
