Beijing, 4th January: Chinese giant Ali baba’s founder Jack Ma has reportedly been missing for the past two months.
Baaghi TV: Chinese billionaire Jack Ma has reportedly vanished for two months.
The speculations are being made on the fact that the high-profile businessman has made no public appearance for the last two months.
Ma is among China’s wealthiest man, and as reported earlier, he ranks as the third-richest man in Asia after Chinese Zhong Shanshan and India’s Mukesh Ambai.
According to a news report published in the UK publication, The Telegraph, the business magnate was scheduled to appear as a judge in the final episode of his own talent show, ‘Africa’s Business Heroes’, but mysteriously did not turn up for it and as a consequence, his photographs were removed from the show’s website.
News.18 quoted Alibaba spokesperson, “Due to a schedule conflict, Mr Ma could no longer be part of the finale judge panel of Africa’s Business Heroes earlier this year (2020).”
According to reports from sources, it is being said that Ma, who is known for his outspokenness, came in conflict with President Xi Jingping-led Central Communist Party government.
The report published in News18.com states that the billionaire had criticised the CCP government’s ‘pawnshop’ financial regulators and state-owned banks in an incendiary speech in Shanghai back in October.
The Chinese government viewed Ma’s criticism as an attack on the authority of the Communist Party and led to its extraordinary clampdown on Ma’s business activities.
Moreover, the Wall Street Journal reported that the officials in Beijing reprimanded Ma and suspended the blockbuster $37 billion initial public offerings of his Ant Group on the direct order of President Jinping in November.
Reportedly, the Chinese government also ordered Ma’s financial tech company Ant Group to curtail its operations.
