Watch South Africa’s richest CEOs sleep on the streets of Johannesburg in cardboard boxes

The 2016 Sun International CEO SleepOut took place on 28 July, with many high-profile CEOs braving the cold to sleep on the Nelson Mandela Bridge in Johannesburg.

The CEO SleepOut is an initiative aimed at raising funds and awareness for homeless people in South Africa.

Notable participants included crime activist Yusuf Abramjee, MTN SA CEO Mteto Nyati, Uber SA CEO Alon Lits, and JSE CEO Nicky Newton-King.

MultiChoice CEO Mark Rayner, Blue Label Telecoms CEOs Mark and Brett Levy, Vodacom CEO Shameel Joosub, BCX CEO Isaac Mophatlane, and Investec CEO Stephen Koseff were also present.

Public Protector and CEO SleepOut brand ambassador Thuli Madonsela also joined the event.

Along with the main event on Nelson Mandela Bridge, 2016 also sees a number of satellite events taking place around the country.

By midnight the 2016 CEO Sleepout has already raised over R34 million – closing in on the goal of R40 million for the event.
