Ex-Sports CS Rashid Echesa found himself in another trailer scandal that involved the Deputy president office, Kenya Defense Forces and international companies.

KSH 400 billion is the tender. KSH 11.5 million is the initial consultancy fee and, after the deal is struck, a further Sh50 million was to be paid.

Former Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa, the broker, and Eco Advanced Technologies LLC, the supplier of military surveillance equipment.

The deal went astray and was blown apart after Mr. Echesa arrested and interrogated at the DCI headquarters Thursday on Kiambu Road.

The company is based both in Poland and the US and its representatives were to supply, install, commission and maintain an integrated communication and security surveillance system on behalf of the Kenya Defence Forces.

The CS is said to have lured the arms dealer into the deal that included drones after presenting himself as a friend of Deputy President William Ruto. He is said to have already pocketed US$115,000 (Sh11.5 million) in down payment.

“I went by myself to the Ministry of Defence offices on Lenana Road and I entered. Three times, I even got receipts from the offices I went into. The receipts even bear the KDF stamps and they are also signed,” a Poland company official said.

Echesa was arrested again at the JKIA today when he was boarding plane to Poland to engage further on the deal with the firms' management in Poland.
