Do you remember Lual Malong Yor Jnr, the South Sudanese socialite who uploaded videos while swimming in US dollars?
Malong is back, and he recently uploaded a video that has gone viral.
The video shared on TikTok shows Malong flaunting a chopper under manufacturing.
In the viral video, the self-styled young tycoon is seen showing the chopper, which he says is being made with specifications that would suit the South Sudanese terrain and weather conditions.
“Based on the specifications of the weather in South Sudan, on this one, you can fly from Juba to Yambio. This is being built based on my specifications.”
“I know the weather in South Sudan, so I need a helicopter built based on those specifications.”
He further cites the chopper he is using as a normal one as he awaits a “presidential chopper.”
He further says he would inscribe his name, “Young Tyoon,” on the new chopper.
The video comes a few months after Malong was mysteriously released from a Ugandan jail early in February 2023.
Malong Jnr was slapped with a 6-year sentence in August 2021 after defrauding two Ethiopian nationals of KSh. 144 million ($1 million).
Lawrence Lual Malong Yor, along with two others, was handed the sentence by the High Court Anti-Corruption Division in Kampala.
Evidence produced in court said that Malong had passed off to gold dealers as the son of a general in South Sudan during his dealings with the Ethiopian businessmen.
He also claimed to be ‘connected’ to Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.
Malong gained fame after uploading several photos and videos of himself swimming in United States dollars on Facebook.
He later appeared on the JKL talk show, where he talked about his wealth, which he said had been given to him by Jesus.
