Mr. President, please forgive me – Former Sports CS Echesa
Former Sports Cabinet Secretary, Mr. Rashid Echesa, has appealed to the President to forgive him.
The former CS who was dismissed from his post on March 1st has appealed to the President to forgive him for openly engaging in 2022 succession politics and supporting DP William Ruto.

“Mr President, we supported you to be reelected for the second time. If there is a mistake I did, I want you to find a place in your heart and forgive me. If supporting Ruto could be the cause, I better be told. Supporting Ruto is not a matter of life and death,” he told journalists at his Kakamega home.
Mr. Echesa made it his business to support DP Ruto’s 2022 Presidential bid when his employer [the President] had cautioned Cabinet Secretaries against engaging in succession politics but rather to focus on his big four development agenda.
The former CS even went ahead to attack his former party leader, Mr. Raila Odinga, a move that observers believe was the start of his fall out with the President, bearing in mind that the President and Mr. Odinga were now working together.
