Mining magnate Patrice Motsepe tried to convince students at the Tshwane University of Technology, in Pretoria, that being a billionaire is overrated.
Speaking during the latest leg of the Motsepe Foundation’s roadshow to listen to suggestions on development projects, Motsepe pointed out that, “Money is very, very important but having it doesn't mean you'll be happy. So always pursue what you think makes you happy."
He further told the students that when they apply for money from his Foundation, it is a grant, a gift, adding that all he is asking is that, “…when you're done, please try to help where you come from. We don't want you to pay us back.”
