Jack Ma has reportedly not made a public appearance in over two months. Speculations about his whereabouts intensified when Ma failed to appear as a judge in the final episode of his own show, Africa’s Business Heroes. The flamboyant co-founder of Alibaba and Ant Group has not made a public appearance since Ant’s initial public offer (IPO) was suspended in November. He was advised not to leave the country by the government.
