South Sudanese self-proclaimed ‘tycoon’ has gone missing in the Ugandan capital, Kampala for close to a whole week, according to his family.

Last month, young tycoon Lawrence Lual Malong Jr., bragged about living a very expensive lifestyle, including flying in a presidential jet and wearing a $10,000 pair of shoes.

His relative told Radio Tamazuj this morning that Lual was picked inside his hotel room at Kabalagala, a Kampala suburb.

“Hotel guys said Lual was picked by UPDF soldiers who came with two vehicles, but the UPDF has denied,” he said.

According to the family member, they had tried to contact him several times in vain prompting them to make a report to the police.

“We don’t know who abducted him from the hotel. What we know is that Lual has no problem with the government of Uganda, “he said. “We are very concern as family members.”

Lual, who claims his wealth comes from Jesus, was last year videotaped ‘swimming’ in dollars inside a hotel in Nairobi. Lual filmed himself lying on a bed covered in $100 bills; he claimed that there was $1 million total on the bed which, he said, was in a “presidential suite” in an undisclosed location.
