Monday April 1, 2019 - Former Sport and CultureCabinet Secretary, Richard Echesa, has revealed the tribulations he isundergoing one month after he was sacked by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Echesa was sacked by Uhuru on March 1st and replacedwith Amina Mohammed.
Addressing mourners during the burial of former ActingManaging Director of Nzoia Sugar, Micheal Kulundu, on Saturday, Echesa revealedhow a lot of his friends and Western Kenya leaders have abandoned him.
“The day I left office, my phone literally ceased to ring.”
“My “friends” had moved on.”
“I found myself checking my phone to establish if I hadinadvertently put it off.”
“The phone was fine,” Echesa told a local daily.
Echesa also accused Uhuru of plotting to kill the sugar industry inWestern Kenya.
The former CS said the bilateral agreement between PresidentKenyatta and his Ugandan counterpart, Yoweri Museveni, allowed Uganda to exportmilk and eggs to Kenya and increase the annual sugar import quota from Uganda.
He says this was bound to hurt the agricultural sector inWestern Kenya.
“They want to sell the companies just like they didwith Pan-Paper which was sold to Rai who has since converted it into go-downsto store his sugar.”
“Uhuru lied to Museveni when he asked him about thePan-Paper mill, that it was being revived when he knows very well that he soldit to his friend,” said Echesa.
Highly placed sources said Echesa was sacked overincompetence and leaking Cabinet secrets to his friends and prostitutes.
