What is Benazir Bhutto’s Net Worth?
Benazir Bhutto was a Pakistani politician and stateswoman who had a net worth of $850 million. Benazir Bhutto was born in Karachi, Sindh, Dominion of Pakistan, as the eldest child of former prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.
With undergraduate degrees from Radcliffe College (1973) in the United States and Oxford (1976) in England, Benazir satiated her thirst for knowledge while traveling the world. When her father was overthrown by the military in a coup in 1977, he was already in Pakistan.
He was later put in prison and then killed. As a result of Benazir’s own repeated incarcerations, she was forced to travel to London for exile. Through her father’s political party, the liberal Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Benazir Bhutto started to become politically active over time.
She returned to Pakistan in 1986. In 1988, she was elected prime minister thanks to her political background, reformist outlook, and attractive appearance.
She later rose to become one of the most well-known women in the world and was frequently used as a metaphor for the advancement of women’s rights.
However, both of her periods as prime minister (1988–1990 and 1993–1996) were marred by controversy when Bhutto and her husband, Asif Ali Zardari, were accused of corruption.
She was driven into exile once more in 1999, but this time she chose to live in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where she stayed for nine years. In order to lead her party in the approaching general elections, Bhutto went back to Pakistan in October 2007.
Sadly, she was killed at a campaign gathering in Rawalpindi by an assailant who later detonated himself. Benazir Bhutto was one of the seven recipients of the United Nations Prize in the Field of Human Rights the following year.
