There is no gazzetment that was done to show that the land was relocated to Gachagua
Our investigations shows that in 1996, the commisioner of lands accepted the payment of Ohas meaning Ohas’ lands entered a legal binding agreement.
Ohas predicament under Gachagua does not end here, our investigations shows that on 24th and 25th March, 2023 and subsequent arrests and alignment in court of Mr. Ohas family members by DCI officers leading to criminalisation of a civil matter in court which was a way of harassing, intimidating, coercing and and an illegal act.

However , According to the court papers Gachagua, through his lawyer Philip Nyachoti, claims that the Ohas during his tenure at the land Ministry, tampered with land office records in order to deprive him of his land as entitled by the Law.
He claims that the property has been charged to Equity Bank as collateral for various financial facilities granted to him totaling Sh200 million.
“Wamunyoro has always been the legal owner of the disputed property, but Ohas and his company Colombus Two Thousand purposefully tampered with the records at the lands office in December 2019 so that any official search on the property now indicates that Colombus is the registered owner,” Gachagua says.
Gachagua claims that Ohas caused a parallel title to be issued to his company Colombus in an irregular and unlawful manner.
Ohas denied the said accusations, he said that Gachagua was using his powers to grab his land.
