The reason behind his arrest is not clear.

Echesa was fired in March last year when President Uhuru Kenyatta reorganised his power axis to achieve his Big Four legacy dream.

Before his sacking, Echesa was under fire at the ministry with various graft scandals emerging and national teams constantly complaining of being under-funded.

In May last year, the former Sports CS was arrested alongside Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala over killings by a criminal gang which left 18 people dead in Matungu, Kakamega County.
