Johann reads Sake-Beeld

Published by at 8:47 am under People,Top Stories

Johann Rupert has had an amazing “run” in the media since the announcement last week that he’ll come back as CEO of Richemont early next year. I’ve written (see article below) about the dailies FTD and Handelsblatt, which both called Rupert “Africa’s Warren Buffett”.

The German business weekly WirtschaftsWoche, which will be on the shelves this morning, also featured Rupert in an article – also with the headline “Africa’s Warren Buffett”. The story is about Remgro and writes it up as a good investment.

But, the icing on the cake was this blog entry in the luxury magazine Haute Living. Not for what was written (in fact, definitely not for what was written), but for the picture.

The hard-working, unappreciated Afrikaans business journalists at Naspers will be very pleased to see that “Africa’s Warren Buffett” and someone who features on the Forbes “Richest in the World” list, reads Afrikaans business papers…it looks like Sake-Rapport, or is it Sake-Beeld?

This picture cries out to be used in an ad campaign for Sake. I’m sure Johann won’t mind. Come on…go for it Naspers.

    I noticed, the Haute Living blog entry (the written part) irritated Vinny Lingham as well. And then the offending part vanished mysteriously…

    An interesting sideshow to a very interesting photo.

    Since my comment on Nov. 23, 2009 the photo of Johann Rupert reading Sake-Beeld in his private jet on his way to somewhere has also vanished. Can it be that Johann put pressure on the magazine to remove the photo? I won’t be surprised.
