Shock on ex-Sports CS RASHID ECHESA! See what detectives are planning to do to him even after appealing to UHURU not to be treated like a criminal

Friday May 31, 2019-Barely a week after former Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa appealed to President Uhuru Kenyatta to forgive him, a number of investigative agencies have now told the High Court that he is not immune to criminal proceedings.

This comes barely a week after Echesa appealed to President Uhuru Kenyatta for him not to be treated like a nobody by investigative agencies.

The Attorney General (AG), Inspector General of Police (IG), the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI), and the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) have maintained that they will ensure justice is served to the victims of Matungu killings.

The agencies told High Court Judge Jesse Njagi that it is within their mandate to arrest, and charge anyone involved in criminal activities including Echesa. 

The agencies also dismissed claims that the arrest was politically motivated. 
Echesa, an ally of Deputy President William Ruto, had claimed that former Prime Minister Raila Odinga was behind his woes. 

He made the claims after he was arrested alongside Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala over the recent killings in Matungu.

The four agencies told the court that Echesa, and other any leader implicated of any criminal offence, will face the full force of the law without fear or favor.

“Orders sought are tantamount to clothing the applicant with immunity against any criminal proceedings which are in contravention of the respondents’ constitutional mandate. Allegations that he is politically targeted are false and not backed by any evidence,” said the respondent.
