Echesa was arrested on Thursday by DCI sleuths at his Nairobi home.

Echesa was fired from the cabinet by President Uhuru Kenyatta in March last year.

His position was taken by Ambassador Amina Muhammed. Echesa blamed Raila Odinga for his sack.

He also said his tough position against the privatisation of state-owned sugar companies and his steadfast support for Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 bid contributed to his removal
