Former Sports CS Rashid Echesa Arrested

Former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa has been arrested by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations.

Reports indicate that the former Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) youth leader has been taken to DCI headquarters on Kiambu Road, Nairobi, for questioning.

This is not the first time Echesa has been arrested.

Last year, he was picked up over Matungu constituency killings.

Regional commander Rashid Yakub confirmed that Echesa was arrested in Kakamega Town, just after he had left a function attended by Deputy President William Ruto in Kakamega.

The reason behind his today’s arrest is, however, not yet known.
