Bragging to be Africa’s youngest billionaire, the 30 year old, Lual Malong Yor Junior, brags about living a very expensive lifestyle, including flying in a presidential jet and wearing a 10,000-dollar pair of shoes according to a video of him that went viral hence leading to ths investigation we conducted about this South Sudan tycoon.
It is alleged that Lual Malong is the stepson of General Paul Malong, one of the few powerful people who allegedly gained massive wealth from South Sudan’s civil war and stashed them in foreign banks.
General Malong, in 2017, was sacked by South Sudan President Salva Kiir and has since denied being behind the atrocities in the country which displaced over two million people within two years from 2013.
Malong has also distanced himself from the “young tycoon” saying that he is not his stepson and has even threatened to sue anyone claiming he is.
“That’s Lual and that’s his money. He’s not called Lual only. He’s called Lawrence Lual. I didn’t say he’s my son, the areas are even different. His grandfather – Malong Yor – is a chief. Everybody knows. Kenyans who have gone to that area know them”, Malong defended.
Meanwhile, Lual Yor has also denied claims of being the stepchild of Malong, stressing that he did not benefit from the alleged proceeds Malong gained from the civil war.
