His mother, Aluel Kuol Makuach loved him so much as a young man while growing up that she could do anything to make him happy. She believed that Lawrence was a reincarnation of her grandfather, Chief Peter Makuach.

His parents showed him great love, his father, Lual Malong Yor Snr. wanted him to be the very best among his pears, but unfortunately, he died while Lawrence was still young. For the mother, life moved on as she battled to stand by his son until she too departed the earth.

South Sudan was a very peaceful country until December 2013, after President Kiir accused his then-deputy Riek Machar of plotting a coup against him and it led to a civil ethnic war, mostly between the people of Dinka, the presidents tribe and Nuer, the vice president’s tribe.

Working on his story, I wondered how many of those people had an idea that some 10 years ago he was battling to make his mining company stand firm and he had attracted investors from countries like China and the United States. How come people never noticed him then to call him names and spoil his image out of jealousy like we see today?

Lawrence is a self-made billionaire, who is less than 30 years and is doing all he can to restore better life to his people, the people of South Sudan. As an African Businessman, people may not like his Public relations strategy which involves him advertising himself to attract investors to his country. 

Some people also complained that he flew first class in his business trips abroad without realising that most of those trips were sponsored by his foreign investors so as to attract more business men of high repute, for his country.

Interestingly the Young Tycoon, has been working to attract investment to South Sudan since 2011 and has travelled to countries including Brazil, India, the United States, Bangladesh, China and Kenya, while so many of these business partners have shown interest the war situation is keeping them away while, they observe the situation with keen interest.

Mr Mark Cutifani the Global Anglo American C E O with Lawrence 
He is very optimistic that it is just but a matter of time, and South Sudan will take its rightful position in the League of Nations. He has made several donations to organisations and homes within his country, South Sudan and Kenya for the benefit of mankind and posterity for humanity.
