A Nairobi court has postponed a Ksh.500 million land dispute case pitting British-born lawyer Guy Spencer and Nairobi politician Agnes Kagure to March next year.

The hearing of the case was set to commence this week but the duty judge said she was on official duty.

Justice Maureen Odero adjourned the case to next year saying she was out on official duty.

In the case, Kagure and businessman Thomas Mutaha sued lawyer Guy Spencer Elms accusing him of forging signatures on the Will of the late Roger Robson who owned the land in question. The deceased left lawyer Spencer in charge of execution and management of his Will.

In November, Michael Fairfax Robson told High court judge Maureen Odero that his brother Roger Robson, who died in 2012, never sold his piece of land that was worth Ksh.500 million to Agnes Kagure who has been claiming it.

Appearing through a video link from the United Kingdom, Michael also disputed claims that his late brother Robson had transferred his shares at Plovers Haunt limited to businessman Thomas Mutaha as claimed by him in the case.

While Kagure claims that she bought the disputed piece of land from the deceased for Ksh.h100 million in 2011, Michael told the court that his brother was still living on the property at the time of his demise in 2012.

“I had been urging Roger to move and sell the said property for several years because of his poor health but he had always resisted my advice and had continued to do so up to and including our last communication,” Michael Fairfax Robson submitted.

He further told the court that on several occasions his brother had informed him of attempts by fraudsters to steal his property in Karen by making false claims of.

On his part, Mutaha, who claims to be a director of Plovers Haunt limited — the company that rightfully owns the land — claims the late Robson transferred his shares in the company to him for free.

In the Will, the deceased is said to have indicated the estates should be sold and proceeds shared between his nephew and charitable institutions in Kenya that focus on environmental conservation.

Kagure and Mutaha, however, accuse Spencer of forging signatures on the Will.
