Saturday, November 24, 2018-Self-declared South Sudanese billionaire,Lual Malong JNR, has been missing since Wednesday last week when he went to Kampala, Uganda for undisclosed business.
Malong’s family reported that he was picked by people dressed in military gear at his hotel room in Kampala and his whereabouts have remained a mystery since last week.
The mystery surrounding Malong JNR’s disappearance has been unveiled after Uganda’s Internal Security Organization(ISO), the Government’s counter intelligence agency responsible for providing national security, confirmed that he is in police custody.
Malong was arrested after he was linked to gold scamming and fraud in Uganda.
He is alleged to have conned several people millions of dollars by selling them fake gold.
ISO had received several complaints from people accusing Malong of defrauding them, leading to his arrest.
Uganda’s ISO director, General Kaka Bagyenda, confirmed that the boisterous Malong is in police custody and refused to divulge more details on his arrest.
“He is a person of interest to us as a security and it’s true we have him. He is helping us with investigations and at the right time, you will be duly informed of what charges he faces.” Baygenda said.
Malong has been in the limelight because of his lavish lifestyle that he always splashes on social media.
When asked by Kenyan journalist Jeff Koinange where he gets money from during an interview on Citizen TV , he claimed that his money comes from Jesus Christ.
But his proverbial forty days reached last week when he was arrested in Uganda and it’s now evident he is a notorious fraudster and conman.
