When self-proclaimed billionaire Lawrence Malong was flushing money and literally swimming in a pile of US dollars at a hotel room in Nairobi, not many thought that the playboy would soon be behind bars.

But, Malong who calls himself “Young Tycoon” is languishing behind bars at Luzira Prison in Uganda.

Malong, who often showcases his flashy lifestyle on social media, was arrested late last year by Ugandan Internal Security Organisation (ISO) operatives in November 2018 in regard to investigations that linked him to gold scams where foreigners had lost millions of dollars.
