Emerging details indicate that Sports and National Heritage Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa ended up being a victim of President Uhuru Kenyatta's tour to Nyanza last week.
The tour which saw the Opposition Leader Raila Odinga host the Head of State in his Bondo home gave the president an opportunity to visit the Jaramogi Oginga Odinga mausoleum where the duo went round in the company of the CS and other government officials.
It is here that a photo was taken revealing possible displeasure of the President with the CS Echesa.
Many tongues were left wagging, wondering what the president could have been saying to the CS in the company of the former Prime Minister.
The evidence of what the president could have been saying has emerged revealing that the latter (CS Echesa), received a dressing down for the poor state of the mausoleum.
According to the Sunday Nation, Echesa had a tough job explaining why the historical premises at Kang'o ka Jaramogi is poorly maintained.
Uhuru reportedly bashed the CS for dedicating all his time on non-issues rather than handling his docket.
““Wewe kazi yako ni kungoja wikendi ifike halafu unaenda kwa kila matanga kutusi watu. Hiyo sio kazi ya waziri. Hio ni kazi ya wabunge. Ni Kama hujui kazi yako.", scolded the president.
You seem to think that the work of a Cabinet secretary is to attend all funerals in western Kenya,” he said, according to the paper.
This also comes at a time when Uhuru has been seemingly unsatisfied with a section of his Cabinet Ministers, some of whom he has openly criticized his Cabinet Ministers for a poor job.
