Sol Kerzner's former wife owns 15% of Bell Pottinger
Heather Kerzner, a former wife of Sol Kerzner, engaged to Bell Pottinger boss James Henderson, bought a 15% stake in the PR firm shortly before its South African scandal erupted, The Times of London reported. Bell Pottinger has apologised for running a social media campaign that stoked racial tension on behalf of the Gupta family. The PR firm was pressured into dropping the Guptas as clients after it emerged that terms such as "white monopoly capital" had derived from the UK-based consultants. Kerzner and Henderson jointly own 37% of Bell Pottinger. Whether that will be enough to protect him from the wrath of other equity partners remains to be seen.
