Don Bosco Gichana has come out to narrate how Raila Odinga helped him when he was in a Tanzania Jail. This is after, many people accused Raila of neglecting him when he was suffering in Jail yet Magufuli is his friend and only a phone-call would have freed him.
The controversial politician, who in 2007 gifted opposition leader Raila Odinga with a Hummer SUV, had been in custody since 2013.
The 41-year old was released by Tanzanian court on a $149,000 (Sh13.7 million) fine after pleading guilty to charges of conspiracy to launder money and money laundering.
The case had witnessed its fair share of drama including endless adjournments, frequent changes to charge sheets and, on at least two occasions, Gichana was acquitted then immediately re-arrested just outside the courtroom.
Before his detention, Gichana was a notable figure on the Kenyan political and social scene with luxury cars and a nightclub to his name.
In a social media post, Gichana confirmed Raila stood with him, and even paid part of his fine.

His RT Hon Raila Amollo. You relentlessly fought for my release. Several times you spoke to Magufuli until you came up with the Idea that set me up free. You personally contributed also for the fine money and you simply asked how much was the balance? My political mentor RAO.
