Recovered Cars By DCI At Echesa’s Home Were Stolen From A Widow He Had Slept With Her Daughter



Ex CS Echesa is a man who’s courting trouble and jumping from one scandal to the other. Barely two weeks has passed since the cunning politician was arrested and charged over a fake arms deal where he was accused of defrauding foreigners of Sh11.3M.

Monday morning, Echesa who’s out on bail found himself on the chopping board as DCI sleuths from the special crime unit raided his Karen home. Officers were forced to jump over the fence to gain entry after Echesa refused to open the gates.

Five cars with questionable grounds were confiscated from the compound and towed to the DCI HQ where investigations are ongoing as well as Echesa being interrogated after getting arrested.

DCI say the raid was prompted following a Public Complaints Section by a Kisumu resident of Former CS Rashid Echesa having Fraudulently transferred to his possession her late husband’s three Motor vehicles; a Passat KAY 388A, KBZ 009J Toyota LandCruiser V8 & KBN 242N Toyota Mark X in 2016.

He also denied having an affair with Kabura’s daughter, saying, “I am human, and she is of age, lakini kama ningekuwa nakula huyo msichana, hio mambo iko na uhusiano gani kwa hii maneno ya gari? Hapana, mimi sijakula msichana wake, ni jina anataka kuniharibia.”

According to Kabura, the husband had suffered a stroke and invited Rashid to his bed in hospital where he introduced them to each other. It became apparent to her then that Echesa and the husband knew each other, it wasn’t just clear as to how much.

Husband passed away and immediately property tissues ensued. His relatives came demanding for the cars and this where Echesa came wide into the picture.

In a sworn affidavit, Kabura says, “He was there through my darkest moments and he offered to take the cars and park them at the central police station, until I come into agreement with my in-laws. He also took my husband’s gun, saying he was going to surrender it to the police,” claims Kabura.

Echesa and Kabura kept close contact even after the burial of the husband. However after several weeks, he started playing hide and seek and she later realized he wasn’t willing to give up the cars and that Echesa at the same time was involved in a steamy relationship with her daughter.

The matter was swept under the rags for years as officers took her in rounds until now that Kinoti boys have decided to crack the whip. Echesa went ahead to fraudulently change the ownership of the cars from the widow.
