Mo Dewji, a Tanzanian businessman and philanthropist, has made headlines in the African business community by ranking among the continent’s top billionaires. 

Dewji is the CEO of MeTL Group, a conglomerate that operates in a diverse range of industries, including agriculture, consumer goods, finance, and infrastructure. With a focus on providing high-quality products and services, MeTL Group has become one of the largest and most successful companies in Africa.

Dewji’s entrepreneurial journey began at a young age, and he has since built MeTL Group into a multi-billion-dollar empire that spans several countries in Africa, including Tanzania, Kenya, and Mozambique. 

The company’s agriculture division is responsible for producing crops such as cotton, wheat, and corn, while its consumer goods division provides essential products to families and businesses alike. 

MeTL Group’s finance division offers financial services, including banking and insurance, to individuals and corporations, and its infrastructure division builds and maintains critical infrastructure, such as roads and bridges.

Dewji’s rise to the top of Africa’s billionaire rankings is not only a testament to his own entrepreneurial skills but also to the legacy of his father, Ghulam Dewji, a pioneering businessman in Tanzania who laid the foundation for Mo’s success by establishing a successful trading business. 

He was known for his hard work, integrity, and commitment to his community, and these qualities have been passed down to his son and continue to drive his success.

Mo Dewji has stated time and again that he is proud to carry on his father’s legacy and has built upon it with the advancement of MeTL Group. By expanding the business into new industries and markets, he has taken his father’s vision to new heights, and the company continues to thrive and grow under his leadership. 

The Dewji family’s impact on the Tanzanian business community cannot be overstated, and their legacy will continue to inspire and guide future generations of entrepreneurs for years to come.
