DCI detectives raid ex-Sports CS Rashid Echesa’s Karen home


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.

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

Echesa and three others 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.
