  • Acting for Geyser, a BVI registered company that owns a parcel of valuable land in Miritini near the Mombasa port. The land was intended for the expansion of the Global Tea factory, the second largest user of the port and the maker of world famous tea brands such as Kericho Gold and Typhoo. The land is subject to compulsory acquisition by the National Land Commission (NLC) on behalf of Kenya Railways for the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR), a Vision 2030 project. A&K was involved in drafting submissions for the compensation hearing, attending the hearing and making oral representations. The Mombasa County government subsequently objected to the validity of our title and the NLC initiated a separate review of the same, where we attended the review hearing and made oral submissions as to the validity of title. We filed a constitutional petition for breach of the right to property as no award had been made and there has been unreasonable delay. We obtained an interim injunction from the Mombasa High Court preventing entry onto the land pending trial. China Road and Bridge Co (CRBC), the main contractor for the SGR, trespassed onto our client’s land after the injunction and we have filed contempt proceedings against the MD of CRBC, the MD of Kenya Railways and the chairman of the NLC. Since that time, the NLC has made a formal award for our client’s land and compensation for the damaged boundary wall, which we have accepted. However, the contempt proceedings are ongoing. The NLC has also gazetted a fresh notice to acquire more of our remaining land and we await notice of the compensation hearing for the same. We have not received payment under the first award and intend to proceed to Court if the same is not paid shortly.
  • Acting for the Petitioner in this case, that has built 73 holiday apartments along the beach and is being denied access to the beach by the respondents who have acquired two plots over riparian land and which titles the Petitioner seeks to have nullified. In a Constitutional Petition filed in the High Court at Mombasa the Petitioner claimed that a right in the Bill of Rights had been denied and infringed by the Respondents and it sought several remedies under Article 23 of the Constitution of Kenya, including various declarations, permanent and mandatory injunctions and orders of judicial review. The Respondents opposed the Petition on a number of grounds, including locus standi and time bar. The High Court allowed the Petition, granted the declarations, injunctions, judicial review orders and costs. The Respondents however successfully appealed the decision before the Court of Appeal on several grounds, inter alia, that the High Court Judge was wrong to judicially review administrative actions which occurred over 20 years ago, thereby applying Article 47 of the Constitution, relating to fair administrative actions, retrospectively. The Court of Appeal held that the entire Petition was anchored on the provisions of Article 47, and that the said Article was not retrospective in nature. The Petitioner has now appealed to the Supreme Court by way of a Petition for interpretation of Article 47 and for the Court to decide whether or not, in the circumstances and facts of the Petition, the Article can operate retrospectively. A&K has been active throughout the proceedings from the inception and the matter is important as it involves several issues of Constitutional law including the interpretation of the provisions of the Constitution by the Supreme Court. A&K is acting for the Petitioners in the High Court, the 1st and 2nd Respondents in the Court of Appeal and now for the 1st and 2nd Appellants in the Supreme Court.

Benjamin Musau

Leaders in Law endorses Benjamin Musau as our exclusively recommended Tax Law expert in Kenya. If you wish to get in touch with Benjamin please use the contact information provided above.

Benjamin Musau is a Kenya Advocate and the Managing Partner of B M Musau & Co., Advocates, a position he has held since 1999.  He has previously been a Partner in Kaplan & Stratton, where he worked since 1988.  His work encompasses tax legal, regulatory reforms, county government law and reform, reduction of administrative burdens, the structure of business entities, joint ventures, acquisitions, banking, foreign investment, corporate and commercial law, complex litigation and alternative dispute resolution (mediation, negotiations and arbitration).

Ben led the Local Government 2008-2010 World Bank financed Subnational Competitiveness Study of Local Governments, a precursor to the transformation of local governments to County Governments under the Constitution of Kenya, 2010.

He spearheaded the 2005-2008 Regulatory Reforms for Business Activities in Kenya (financed by the World Bank through the Ministries of Finance and Trade & Industry) which have led to substantial reduction of red-tape in Kenya.  This work involved working closely with state corporations, national government regulators, ministries, local and municipal governments in Kenya to review and reform government licenses, rules and regulations, and subjected the Single Business Permit along with other national, local and municipal licenses and permits to careful local, regional and international scrutiny and reform.  The Single Business Permit constituted a substantial portion of income for the then local authorities in Kenya, and there was great private sector pressure to delete it.  Ultimately, it was agreed to reform the Single Business Permit substantially and to gradually replace it with a local business tax collected on behalf of local authorities (now County Governments) by the Kenya Revenue Authority.

The 2005-2008 Regulatory Reforms work entailed the review of all the laws, rules and regulations in force in Kenya at that time, and the publication of the first ever list of business licenses obtaining in Kenya in 2007.

Ben’s regular work also involves corporate commercial legal work and complex litigation including alternative dispute resolution.

Ben is involved in the initiatives to Brand Kenya.  He was invited by the Marketing Society of Kenya and gave the first paper from a legal perspective of branding Kenya while he has subsequently been involved in providing legal expertise which led to the publication of the Investors Guide to Kenya by UNCTAD.  He is also involved in a number of World Bank Group supported regulatory reform improvements in Sudan, Tanzania, Madagascar and Bangladesh, among others.

Ben has acted as a consultant for KIPPRA and the Kenya Law Reform Commission in facilitating a retreat for business people and Government representatives on the challenges to investment in Kenya.

He has made in-depth study on international taxation and financial services law involving current trends in international compliance (anti-money laundering, anti-corruption and counter terrorism financing), international tax and tax treaties, anti-avoidance legislation and tax risk management, global e-commerce taxation, financial instruments, law of banking and financial institutions, international legal research and writing, information security and cybercrime law, , and wrote a Thesis in 2011 on the Extent to Which Kenya Had Implemented the then 40+9 (now consolidated 40) FATF Recommendations on Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing.

Benjamin is currently a candidate for the award of Ph.D on the topic of anti-money laundering, anti-corruption and counter-terrrorism financing within the context of international taxation and financial services law.

Ben is involved in the initiation of Continuing Legal Education for lawyers through the Law Society of Kenya where he has given initial CLE courses based on Managing a Law Firm and Case Management.

Benjamin is currently training the Kenya Police on anti-money laundering, anti-corruption and counter-terrorism financing.

Benjamin is currently a lecturer at the University of Nairobi, School of Law.
