Former Sports Cabinet Secretary, Rashid Echesa, left tongues wagging after he alleged that he had an affair with KTN anchor Mary Kilobi before she got married to Francis Atwoli.
Speaking at Amalemba grounds in Kakamega County on Saturday, Echesa bragged that he chewed Kilobi’s goodies before Atwoli.
“Kilobi knows me better than Atwoli. She was my broom before she went to Atwoli,”, he said as the crowd burst into laughter.
Kilobi has come out to rubbish Echesa’s claims that they had an affair and accused him of using her name to gain political mileage.
Kilobi said that although she has interacted with many prominent Kenyans in the line of duty, she has never interacted with Echesa, let alone having his phone number.
She termed Echesa’s remarks as disrespectful and unacceptable.
“I have interacted with many news sources but not even once have I with one Rashid Echesa.
“I have only have seen him in our Kajiado home. I’ve never even had his phone number! Therefore I consider what he said yesterday for the sake of settling political scores very disrespectful and totally unacceptable,’’ she wrote.
‘’You may not even have respect for people who have helped you in life like SG Atwoli not even for the President of Kenya but there’s a Supreme Power above you that will make you know that He owns the Universe’’ she added.
