There's a total of 11 buddies to find in this game. Even if they die, you'll still get this achievement when you find all of them. As a note, the buddies are the other characters you could have chosen for your main character.

The first three you'll unlock by advancing through the storyline in the North. The next two are locked up in the locations around Pala, I.E. Slaughterhouse, Fresh Fish, Lumberyard, Cock Fights. If you don't find them at one, go to another until you've been to all of them. Make sure you find the building in the area that you can enter, as that's where they'll be hidden.

The sixth buddy in the North is the hardest to find, unless you know where to look. Go here, in the top-middle of the Northern area:

(image not mine). You'll find your buddy laying on the ground and you'll have to give them an injection to get them up and going again.

Make sure you find all six of these before advancing to the South, because you'll be unable to save them once you do and you can't get the achievement.

Once in the south, there are five more to be found. You'll gain three of them as part of the story shortly after unlocking the "Dawa ya moto ni moto" achievement when you transport the barge to the main city. You'll have to go rescue one at Mike's and after you do, the other two join you.

The final two are unlocked like the ones at the Slaughterhouse, you just have to find them. They're much easier to find though. One is at the Brewery in the South's bottom-middle, and the other is at Sediko in the South's top-middle. The second one might be available through the storyline when you have to travel there, but easier just to grab them immediately.

Once you free your last buddy, you should get the unlock. If not, go to the Buddies menu on the Pause menu and you should have six names crossed off, and five names not. If you don't have six crossed off, you missed one in the North and won't get the achievement. If one of the five isn't there, you've still not found one of them in the South and should check the Brewery and Sediko again.
