The politician claims he has solid evidence to present in court proving that the County Executive engages in witchcraft.

In what is likely to shape the political contest in the County, Echesa claims it took the intervention of immediate former Governor Wycliffe Oparanya, Senator Bonny Khalwale and UDA Secretary General Cleophas Malala to save him from officers acting on the instructions of Barasa.
