PHOTOS: South Sudan playboy ‘tycoon’ lives really large
THE SPOT | South Sudan playboy tycoon Lawrence Lual Malong Yor Jnr is a man who lives large and flaunts deep pockets.
Laul, who is averse — or tries to come out so — to being called son of former South Sudan chief of general staff, Gen Paul Malong Awany is said to not own a house but lives in top hotels in Kampala and Nairobi in between his flights to Europe and the Americas.
The 30-year-old is said to own five mineral refineries for gold, diamonds, including two in Kapoeta, South Sudan, another two in Western Uganda and one in Kenya.
He flies only business class or takes a private jet to wherever.
In an interview with Citizen TV’s Jeff Koinange, Yor said he was staying at the Presidential Suite of a top Nairobi hotel where he is paying $2,500 (about Shs10 million) per night.
Lual dismissed allegations that he is the son or step son of former Chief of General Staff of the South Sudan Army, General Paul Malong.
“I am Lawrence Lual Malong Yor Jr, which means my father is Lual Malong Yor Snr. General Malong is not my father… we are not related,” he said.
Gen Malong, who was sacked by President Salva Kiir in May 2017, is one of the richest men in South Sudan. He largely hides his wealth behind farming in Gum Arabic (Acacia gum), as well as other business interests.
Lual, who appears to follow American pugilist Floyd Mayweather’s lifestyle, wastes no time in flaunting his wealth, whether in video or still format.
