He was previously appointed as Sports CS by President Uhuru in 2017 but was fired on March 1, 2019, after his ministry was marred with graft allegations.

Echesa was a key campaign team member for Ruto in the 2022 General Election and was part of the Kenya Kwanza campaign team in Western Kenya.

He ran for the Mumias West parliamentary seat on a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party ticket but was defeated by Johnson Naicca who was elected on an ODM ticket.
