Saturday, February 15, 2020 - Former Sports Cabinet Secretary, Richard Echesa, has told detectives that he is ready to spill beans on how Deputy President William Ruto was involved in the Sh 40 billion arms deal scandal.
Echesa was arrested while trying to con a Polish-American weaponry firm Sh 40 billion under the pretext that he will connect them to supply arms to Kenya Defence Forces (KDF).
Echesa was arrested on Thursday at Deputy President William Ruto’s offices while trying to receive a kickback of Sh 52 million from the firm’s directors.
According to a detective who requested anonymity, Echesa has vowed to drop a bombshell about how the DP’s office was involved in the scandal that has shocked the entire nation.
On Friday, sleuths from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) camped at Ruto’s offices along Harambee Avenue where they quizzed DP’s aides with regard to the scandal.
Echesa is currently detained at Muthaiga Police Station as police continue to conduct investigations into the scandal.
