Embattled former sports CS Rashid Echesa is in a frantic mission to make a truce with opposition Chief Raila Odinga, his political buddy turned foe.
Sources indicate that Echesa has been sending emissaries to Raila ostensibly after it dawned on him that strong association with Ruto was creating a big negative impact on his political star.
Those privy to his operations said the former CS is worried of the constant tribulations he has been facing following his close political relationship with the DP.
In a twist of events, Echesa has declared his intention of ditching the DP if that is what would cause him all the troubles he’s currently witnessing.
He said ‘’I f supporting you to be re-elected for the second time is the mistake that I did, I want you Mr President to find a place in your heart and forgive me. If supporting William Ruto couild be the cause, I better be told. Supporting Ruto not a matter of death but I need to find my peace’’.
Echesa’s move comes just days after he was arrested and spent a night in police cell in connection with the Matungu killings.
He was picked up by detectives after leaving a rally addressed by Ruto in Kakamega and held at Nandi Hills Police Station.
