Saudi Billionaire Tidbits

Saudi Prince Al-Walid bin Talal feeds rice to a young Kenyan girl on a school feeding programme, funded in part by the Saudi Arabian government.
Today the billionaire Twitter investor is in Senegal, on his first visit for 10 years. He was awarded a medal, and donated $1.3million towards “education and health” programmes.
The Prince recently caused controversy by suing Forbes magazine for questioning and underestimating his wealth, leaving him out of the top 10 on its “rich list”. The case may come to nothing, since it was brought in the UK, where the new libel law revision is intended to prevent opportunistic and pointless suits. Prince bin Talal spends time in the UK, where his company owns the famous Savoy Hotel.
