The president son has led quite an exciting life, wedded from another part of the continent and also made good for his life so far.

He was born into the family of Cyril Ramaphosa, who is a renowned politician in the country, and Dr. Tshepo Motsepe. His father has been a popular politician even before welcoming his son Andile into the family.
Cyril was married to a businessperson Nomaziza Mtshotshisa. She was the first woman in Africa to serve as chairperson of the New York Stock Exchange. The couple however called their relationship a quit in 2008, the same year she died of illness.
Cyril them had to marry the second time to Dr. Tshepo Motsepe, and together the couple had a son and called him “Andile”. Dr. Tshepo hails from a respected family in the country and it is worth mentioning that she is related to Patrice Motsepe.
The first lady holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Medicine and Surgery, University of Kwa-Zulu Natal (UKZN). She had her Master’s program at the Harvard School of Public Health.
Andile has two (2) sisters, Mashudu and Keneilewe, and a half-sister, Tulisa. Though like their brother they rather maintain a cagey profile. He is also a brother Tumelo Ramaphosa who lives in San Francisco in California.
He is the Chief Executive officer of StudEX Wildlife and holds a Master’s degree from Hult International Business College. Andile with his siblings were raised by their parents.
Andile Ramaphosa is married to Bridget Birungi, daughter of Amama Mbabazi. The daughter of the former Ugandan Prime Minister holds a Master’s degree in engineering. Andile fell in love after meeting the beautiful Ugandan lady.
The couple met about a decade before finally getting married on August 4, 2018. The husband and wife also had a traditional wedding. White may have been the color of the day as the bright color seem to dominate.
The wedding made waves in both countries; South Africa and Uganda and made headlines. Many heavyweights from both countries were present to witness the wedding, including the president of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni.
In March, Andile was caught up in a scandal that brought a lot of trouble for him and his father. It was revealed by News 24 that he was in connection with Bosasa, now renamed African Global Operations. He had received a lump sum from the company amounting to about R2million. The money is allegedly related to advisory work on more than 20 state and private contracts in other African countries, namely Kenya and Uganda.
The president was also harsh on his son. Saying that if his child is involved with this matter and found guilty, he will help in the process of bringing him to justice.
As of the moment, Andile’s net worth is not known to the public, but his fathers net worth is not one to be joked around with. His father is worth R 6.4 billion, which translates to $5 million.
