Detectives have apparently seized his vehicles including a Range Rover. According to K24 Digital, he was taken in for suspected fraud.

It is also reported that the vocal Western Kenya politician tried to defraud a foreigner in a fake gold scam.

Echesa was fired in 2019 following a cabinet reshuffle that saw Ambassador Amina Mohammed take his place.
