Flamboyant former Youth Fund boss Gor Semelang’o is said to be undergoing tough moments at the notorious Industrial area remand prison where he was transferred to spend 30 days for defaulting on a sh9 million debt.
Semelang’o who unsuccessfully vied for a top position at the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce had been on the run until police finally caught up with him.
The former Youth Fund Chairman is known for his flashy, philanthropic, outgoing nature and has reportedly had several chase cars in his entourage, security details apart from boasting that he was well connected person doing business with some family members of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Inside sources revealed to Weekly Citizen that at the Industrial area prison, Gor has been reduced to a lonely figure and some of his top friends including Jubilee party secretary general Raphael Tuju have not bothered to pay him a visit.
There is however talk to the effect that Gor is laughing all the way to the bank as the judgment is said to be friendlier considering the fact that he would not be compelled to repay the sh9 million debt after spending 30 days only in prison.
On top of that, he is expected to walk away with sh54,000 at the end of his jail term given that he is entitled to a per diem of sh1,800 for each of the 30 days that he will spend in jail.
