Former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa was on Thursday morning arrested by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
Echesa, who was fired from Cabinet by President Kenyatta in March 2019, was reportedly picked from his Nairobi home and driven to DCI headquarters for grilling.
He was allegedly arrested in connection with suspected fraud, according to reports. K24 Digital reported that he is accused of attempting to defraud a foreigner in a fake gold deal.
His vehicles, including a Range Rover, were also impounded. The DCI is yet to issue a statement regarding the arrest of Echesa.
