Former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa is in police custody in Matungu. He was arrested after getting caught on video slapping an electoral official.

Police had been looking for Echesa for questioning over election violence experienced in the Matungu constituency by-election in Kakamega County.

Echesa, who had been declared armed and dangerous by the National Police Service, presented himself before the Matungu Police Station at 4pm on Friday.

Earlier on Friday, Inspector General of Police Hilary Mutyambai had issued an ultimatum to Echesa to surrender to police by 1pm or risk being considered an armed and dangerous suspect on the run.

He will be arraigned Monday to face assault charges.
