Mohammed Dewji, Africa's Youngest Billionaire Freed 10-Days After Kidnap

8:28:00 PM

Africas youngest billionaire Mohammed Dewji has been freed, 10 days after he was kidnapped by armed men in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

The 43-year-old tycoon revealed that he was home safely in a tweet posted to his company METL Groups account.
I thank Allah that I have returned home safely. I thank all my fellow Tanzanians, and everyone around the world for their prayers. I thank the authorities of Tanzania, including the Police Force for working for my safe return.  

The kidnappers reportedly freed the married father of three who made his fortune in textile manufacturing, flour milling, beverages and edible oils by dumping him in a field in the early hours of Saturday morning.

But it is not clear if ransom was paid. The freedom comes after the family of Tanzanian billionaire offered a 1bn Tanzania shilling ($440,000; £330,000) reward for information that would lead to his rescue. More than 20 people were arrested in connection with the abduction before he was released.
