Renown businessman and politician Don Bosco Gichana who was released from Tanzanian prison for money laundering allegations has now publicly confessed that former Prime Minister and ODM leader Raila Odinga is the one who negotiated for his release.

According to his Facebook Post, Bosco who met Raila publicly for the first time since his release said Raila severally spoke to Tanzanian President Pombe until he came up with an idea of releasing him from a close to 5 years jail term.

"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," he posted.

The flamboyant Bosco has also revealed that Raila used to call him severally and he personally contributed the Ksh13.7M fine which he was ordered to pay by Tanzanian Court.

"You personally contributed also for the fine money and you simply asked how much was the balance? My political mentor RAO," he said.

The controversial young politician who gifted Raila Odinga a Hummer in 2007 to boost him in his presidential race campaigns was detained since 2013 to early February this year when he was set free.

His followers have also joined him in thanking Raila Odinga.
