Echesa takes tough action on DPP and DCI

Former Sports and Heritage Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa

Former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa moved to court to establish why he was he was arrested, detained and released without charges over the killings in Matungu, Kakamega County.

The former CS has sued the Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji, Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti, Attorney-General Kihara Kariuki and Inspector-General of Police Hilary Mutyambai.

Through his lawyer James Namatsi the CS stated that he wants the four summoned to explain why they ordered his arrest without proper evidence.

We want the court to prohibit the four from harassing Mr Echesa because we believe there is a political motive behind the arrests,” lawyer Namatsi stated.

Have Police barred

He further revealed that they were seeking to have the police permanently barred from harassing Mr Echesa.

Echesa alleged after he was freed, he got calls from county police notifying him that Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i had ordered his re-arrest.

A team of county security officials called me saying CS Matiang’i had ordered my re-arrest. I want to know the minister’s involvement in all this,” Echesa said.

Mr Echesa was arrested last Friday alongside Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala and Mayoni MCA Libinus Oduor over the activities of criminal gangs in Matungu.
