4. Form trustworthy partnerships
In five years, he had emerged as one of the country’s leading industrialists.

5. Use technology for good
The emergence of mobile cellular telephony led him to diversify into telecoms.

6. You have to earn trust
In March 2000, Masiyiwa left Zimbabwe, never to return to the country, and moved first to South Africa.

7. Empower people
In 2014 CNN’s Fortune Magazine named Masiyiwa one of the 50 most influential business leaders in the world.

8. Stand up for what is right
He has used his wealth to provide scholarships to over 100,000 young Africans over the past 20 years.

9. Help the people in need
He serves on the boards of some global organisations, including The Rockefeller Foundation.
