Controversial and fraudulent Ex-Sports Cs Rashid Echesa survive on fraud and conning deals. The former Cabinet Secretary started his fraud business on fake currency, then Sh 39 billion fake arms deal and now in car registration fraud.


Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives has established that the registration number KCW 298Q of a Toyota Land Cruiser V8 that was seized from former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa's compound yesterday is forged.


The detectives have traced the number to another vehicle -- a Mazda belonging to Ms Irene Mueni.


The DCI is requesting Ms Mueni to present herself to the detectives to assist in ongoing investigations.


DCI  attached to the Serious Crimes Unit raided the former CS' home in Karen on Monday where they took away five cars that they are alleged to have been acquired fraudulently.


These included the V8 KCW 298Q, a Lexus KBY 750U, a Volkswagen KAY 388A, a Mercedes Benz KCL 350J and a pick-up.

He has been accused of forging the registration details of a vehicle belonging to his deceased friend, Mr Patrick Akifuma, who died on March 14, 2016.


According to a police affidavit, Mr Echesa would occasionally hire one of the deceased's cars, a Toyota Land Cruiser V8, which he allegedly failed to return after his friend's death.


Akifuma's wife, Ms Esther Kabura, claims she later discovered that Mr Echesa had fraudulently transferred ownership of the said motor vehicle to his name.
