Former Sports Cabinet Secretary (CS) Rashid Echesa has finally broken silence following a car drama at his Karen home.
Monday morning, DCI sleuths were forced to jump over the gate into his compound and arrested him over fraudulent accusation of three motors belonging to Esther Kabura.
In his response, the Former CS produced a letter stating how the Directorate of Criminal Investigations vindicated him from an alleged fraudulent accusation of three motors.
Echesa claims that the DCI act of arresting him and taking his vehicles was malicious.
“AMBIGUOUS! It’s amazing that the @DCI_Kenya works in a cryptic and abstruse way! Why are they acting as if they never served me with this letter dated 5th February 2018!” tweeted Echesa.
In the letter shared by Echesa, a complaint was made on January 23rd 2017 by Kabura who claimed that the Former CS, who was a friend to her late husband, took three vehicles belonging to her late husband immediately after his death for safe custody but failed to return them.
The three vehicles were listed as KBZ 009 J Toyota Land Cruiser V8, KBN 242 W Toyota Mark X and KAY 388 A Volkswagen Passat.
The DCI Kenya further established that Echesa was given the vehicles for safe custody after the complainant, Kabura, was embroiled in an inheritance dispute with the relatives of her late husband who are accused to have plotted to take over the properties.
The letter further vindicates Echesa from the claim of fraudulent accusation with the DCI stating that the complainant had requested the Former CS to dispose of the vehicle for her due to her financial constraints.
“It was established that indeed the said motor vehicles were given to Rashid Mohamed following a disagreement between the complainant and the family of her late husband who wanted to deprive her of their properties which included the motor vehicles.
“Later the complainant approached Rashid requesting him to assist her in disposing of the motor vehicles as she was undergoing serious financial problems.
“Upon completion of the investigations, it was established that the motor vehicles in question were sold by the complainant a fact that was supported by the production of a signed agreement and cash deposits into her account,” reads in part the letter from the DCI dated February 5th 2018.
According to the alleged DCI’s letter: “Due to the aforesaid, the matter was closed as no further police action was required after both parties were summoned and were advised accordingly.”Do you have any story you would like to share?
