Currently, Uhuru, 61 has endorsed former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and is against DP Ruto’s presidency.
Speaking in Bungoma County on Friday when he accompanied Ruto, Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader, Musalia Mudavadi and Bungoma Senator, Moses Wetangula for a series of rallies in the vote-rich county, Echesa hinted that the President is aware of the mess he has done during his tenure and fears being asked by DP Ruto where he took the billions.
“Sisi tunajua wewe umeendesha nchi vibaya umekopa umeeka wananchi kwa umaskini sasa unaogopa tukichugua serikali tutakuuliza pesa ya wakenya iko wapi.
“Na ndiyo kwa sababu unatafuta kibaraka yako uweke hapo kwa serikali ati ikuje ikuprotect. Mheshimiwa rais sikiza my friend wakenya wamechanuka na wakenya tumechoka imebaki miezi sita fanya halahala uende nyumbani hustler na Musalia na Wetang’ula wachukue serikali,” Echesa said.
Echesa is among western leaders who are campaigning for DP Ruto’s presidential bid in August.
