(KDRTV) – Detectives investigating former Sports CS Rashid Echesa over the fraudulent acquisition of three vehicles from a widow were shocked after they found a lot of money in one of the vehicles.
Detectives raided Echesa’s Karen home on Monday morning and carted away five vehicles. It has now emerged that one of the vehicles, a Mercedes Benz Registration Number KCL 350J, had Ksh 507,000 in its front seats.
It is not clear why Echesa had all that money in his possession.

The politician, whose Education history is not known, owns a posh 12-bedroom mansion in Karen. He is believed to own homes in different parts of Nairobi including another one in Ruiru. It is not clear how a man with no education and very little known business investments would own all these properties. But this is Kenya for you.
