South Sudanese Young Tycoon also known as Lawrence Lual Malong has approached Salva Kiir with a request to replace Dr Nadia Arop who is the acting Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports. Lual presented complaints to Salva Kiir about how there is a big void in the ministry and would like to fill it.
Their meeting on Monday evening was leaked to Juba Eye by a source that requested anonymity. According to the reports received, Young Tycoon complained to Kiir about poor sports, culture and many factors affecting youths in the country that the minister in office is not countering.
In an attempt to convince the President to substitute him in, he visited alone and had a private meeting in Juba where he presented his concerns. The president who listened to Young Tycoon’s suggestion promised him a second meeting where he will decide in the time between whether to decree Dr Nadia or not.
Among the concerns presented is lack of genuine Basketball team that can break borders and so is soccer and volleyball as they are youth’s main sports. We are told Young Tycoon promised to build at least 2 stadiums in case the replacement take place as discussed. Salva Kiir who was shocked by Young Tycoon’s visit and proposal only requested for a time to decide.
This is the second time the Tycoon has approached Salva Kiir in search of a government position but this time the rank is bigger. He left the office not so happy as we are told. The source put it that he talked throughout the meeting trying to convince the president and the reply couldn’t make him happy as wait time means 50-50.
