Problems of good governance and rent seeking have been cited for this situation which involves breach of contract and investor losses

Nearly 100 commercial farming investors in Gambella are losing thousands of hectares of land because the region leased by mistake, lands under federal jurisdiction.

“You should talk to the federal government. I wish to give no comment on the case,” said Gatluak Tut Kon, president of the Regional State, when contacted by Fortune.
