Former Sports CS RASHID ECHESA drops a bomb on the Matungu’s senseless killings as he reveals this-MATIANG’I should hear this

Tuesday June 4, 2019-Former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa has once again distanced himself from the ongoing violent killings and attacks in Matungu Constituency, Kakamega County.

This comes a few weeks after he was arrested, detained and later released over possible involvement in the killings, and has since moved to court against Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiangi and Inspector General of Police Hilary Mutyambai over wrongful detention.

Speaking during an interview on Radio Maisha, Echesa admitted to visiting the troubled region moments to his arrest, but pointed out that his visit was actually to help calm the situation and not to incite residents as it was claimed by the police.

He that his visit saw him engage locals who were growing hostile against the police to cooperate with the law enforcers and also attended a security meeting with area police bosses in a bid to ensure that sanity returns.

“I visited the region when the killings intensified and held talks with locals who were at the time rejecting the police officers deployed in the area. I also attended meetings with state agencies," Echesa said.

Echesa was arrested alongside area Senator Cleopa Malala and two other local politicians.
