“It Wasn’t Me”, Ruto Distances Himself From Echesa Saga

Deputy President William Ruto has said his office was not involved in the alleged fake military tender deal between former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa and Polish investors. This, was after one of Eco Advanced Technologies which Echesa had contacted to supply the military surveillance equipment told authorities they had a meeting at Ruto’s office.


Echesa is said to have used the Office of the Deputy President and the signature of Defense Cabinet Secretary Monica Juma to cut the fraudulent multi-billion-shilling deal to supply military surveillance equipment and guns.

The controversial youthful politician was arrested by detectives at around 11am on Thursday, February 13, and taken to in for questioning. Echesa was on charged Friday with forgery over the deals and released on Sh1 million bail. He is however still in police custody as the police complete their investigations.

Cotu boss Francis Atwoli, slammed the DP for allowing his office to be used in executing fake and fraudulent deals.

“If such documents can be signed in your office, then it means if you become president, you will carry Central Bank on your back and disappear with it,” Atwoli said.
