In March 2019, Echesa was dismissed as Sports CS and his position taken over by Amina Mohammed.
Trouble deepened for the former CS following his support for DP William Ruto.
He has not once or twice been heard dismissing ODM leader ODM Raila Odinga’s thoughts on the future of the country.
Recently he was part of anti-BBI crusade in Kakamega where Raila and his team were.
They were teargassed by the police before they were unceremoniously dispersed.
