DCI Detectives raids former CS Rashid Echesa’s karen home

BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,2ND MARCH 2020-Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have raided the home of embattled former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa in Karen, Nairobi.

The detectives were forced to jump over the fence after Echesa apparently declined to open the gate until his lawyer arrives at the home.

Reliable Sources have told Upesi News  that investigators are stormed the home in search for documents related to the multi-billion fraud case facing the former Cabinet Secretary and others.

It is understood that  the detectives are also probing tax evasion claims against Echesa in regards to several vehicles linked to him.

Echesa and three others — Daniel Otieno, Clifford Okoth and Kennedy Oyoo — are accused of defrauding international investors through a fake military equipment deal worth Ksh.39.5 billion.

They were arraigned on February 17 and charged with conspiring to commit a felony, making a document without authority, obtaining money by false pretence, attempting to commit a felony and uttering a false document.

They denied all the charges and are out on a Ksh.1 million cash bail with an alternative of a Ksh.3 million surety bond
