Former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa has dismissed Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala’s outburst on his security fears.
He was reacting to reports of Malala breaking into tears while addressing the Senate Security Committee on Monday, 14th September, when he claimed that five DCI officers were planning to kill him.
In an interview with a local radio station, Tufani, in western Kenya, Echesa claimed that Malala was crying to conceal his guilt over his meeting with Deputy President William Ruto.
The former CS accused the senator of holding night meetings with the DP.
Echesa said: “He has been meeting Ruto at night and that is why he was shedding crocodile tears in the Senate. He is still a mole of Deputy President.”
According to Echesa, Malala was given Ksh5.5 million by the Deputy President to build a house in the town before he became the Kakamega Senator.
