Former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa appears to be in trouble.

A police report released on Thursday indicates Echesa was on Wednesday night involved in a brawl at Jose Lounge and Grill in Mumias involving the area’s Officer Commanding Station (OCS).

The man identified as Rajab Munyendo, who was in the company of former CS, reported to police that while they were drinking at the Jos Lounge Bar, he touched the officer’s female friend sparking a heated fight that saw the OCS damage his car.

This act led to a brawl between the two groups. During the commotion, Munyendo’s Mercedes-Benz which is white in color was maliciously damaged by the OCS.

Munyendo also alleges that he lost Sh77, 000 during the incident. Police are investigating the incident.

Echesa has in the past been charged with conspiracy to commit a felony, he is accused of conspiring to make a document with intent to defraud in the multibillion-shilling fake arms deal.

The former CS has been charged alongside Daniel Omondi alias General Juma, Clifford Onyango, Chrispin Oduor, and Kennedy Mboya with six counts of making a false document.

They are also alleged to have obtained Ksh11.5 million from Kozlowski Stanley Bruno by purporting that they would award him a tender to supply military equipment.
