On Friday, Billionaires.Africa reported that Tanzanian multimillionaire Seif Ali Seif’s company, Kagera Sugar, will be acquiring the sugar assets of the troubled sugar producer and property group, Tongaat Hulett.

Kagera Sugar is a subsidiary of Super Group, a large Tanzanian conglomerate controlled by Seif Ali Seif and his family.

  3. Superstar Forwarders: An integrated logistics provider, Superstar Forwarders specializes in cross-border transportation, freight forwarding, and clearing services.

The company operates a fleet of more than 200 trucks.
