Elon Musk’s $255.2 billion (R3.8 trillion) fortune probably makes him “the richest person to ever walk the planet”, according to Forbes magazine.

The Pretoria-born-and-raised gazillionaire added $36 billion (R537 billion) to his considerable kitty on Monday after news that rental car company Hertz is buying 100 000 of his Tesla cars.

Elon has become by a long way the richest CEO ever to have lived. If you took Elon Musk's money, and we (South Africa) nationalised Elon Musk and we take everything that he owns and we convert it into rands South African... You could run South Africa, none of us would have to pay any tax, we wouldn't have to borrow any money for two years.
