Echesa to spend weekend in police cells

A Nairobi Court has remanded Former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa until Monday February 17 at 6 pm to allow police complete investigations.

Jomo Kenyatta International Airport Law court magistrate Lucas Onyina ruled that Echesa and his co - accused will be released on a cash bail of 1 million after police conclude the investigations.

Echesa, Daniel Otieno, Kennedy Oyoo and Clifford Okoth were arrested by Directorate of Criminal Investigations detectives on Thursday over 39 billion fake military equipment tender.

The prosecution had asked the magistrate to allow them to detain the suspects for 21 days to complete search.

According to the prosecution, the investigators need to travel to US to collect more evidence.

The request by the prosecution was opposed by defence lawyers led by Evans  Ondieki who claimed the reason behind Echesa and his co accused arrest were political.

Echesa will be held at Muthaiga Police station .
