Subow has been linked to the fake military equipment deal that involved the former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa, the office of the Deputy President and the signature of the CS for Defense.

The fake military arms deal also involved other three suspects who had been arraigned in the court

Rashid Echesa had been arraigned in the court alongside Daniel Otieno Omondi alias general Juma, Clifford Okoth Onyango alias Paul, and Kennedy Oyoo Mboya on February 17, 2020

The suspects had been charged with attempt to obtain Ksh. 39, 544, 200, 000 for a foreign investor by falsy pretending that they would award him a tender by the State Department to supply military equipment

KDRTV understands that the suspects pleaded not guilty to all counts which included obtaining money by false pretenses, conspiracy to commit a felony, uttering a false document

However, the former sports CS has termed the move political witch hunt

The fake military equipment deal is also believed to have led to the death of the late police sergeant Kipyegon Kenei who was attached to the office of the Deputy President at the Harambee Annex offices.
