Monday July 1, 2019-Former Sports CS Rashid Echesa, on Saturday, revealed that DP William Ruto tried to defend him before he was kicked out of office.
Speaking during a thanksgiving service at the Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) in Mumias, Kakamega County, Echesa explained that some people didn't want him at the docket so they forced him out.
"There was some drama and I know that the DP fought for me but the conmen had their way. Anyway, we leave it to God," stated Echesa.
President Kenyatta fired the embattled Echesa and replaced him with Amina Mohamed.
Echesa had been mentioned in a number of cases that might have led to his dismissal from the Cabinet.
Apart from being entangled in a money laundering case, the former CS found himself in trouble when eight Pakistani dancers who were arrested in Parklands, Nairobi claimed that they were in the country with his full permission.
Besides, Echesa was suspected to be a drug dealer in the country.
