Dr Oginde, currently on official duty in Western Kenya, had visited part of the the Kisumu Law Courts facility which had been grabbed by private individuals but recovered by the Commission through litigation.

Bishop Oginde also assured county governments support in the fight against corruption in the country especially property lost to land grabbers.
