1.In its application dated 26th January 2022 the applicant prays for the following reliefs;a.That there be stay of execution of the warrants of arrest issued on the 11th January 2022 pending the determination of this application.b.The court does lift and set aside the warrant of arrest issued against the applicant on 11th January 2022 in compliance with the orders of stay issued on the 20th February 2020 to facilitate the matter proceed to the Court of Appeal.
2.The applicant prayed for costs as well.
3.The application is supported on the grounds thereof and the affidavit of Samuel Kimutai Birir the chairman and director of the applicant.
4.The application is opposed by the respondent’s replying affidavit filed on 1st February 2022.
5.When the matter came up for hearing the court directed the same to be disposed by way of written submissions.
6.The court has perused the affidavits and the submissions. The issue herein is the payment of the respondent’s fees. My understanding of the application is that there is a pending appeal hence the need to have execution stayed.
7.The court has perused the court records and there is no evidence of any notice of appeal. At the same time, it is not clear whether the applicant was granted leave to appeal against the ruling of the court.
8.The amount in question is the fees pursuant to a taxation undertaken by the deputy registrar. The amount is certain. It appears the applicant has partially paid the amount in question totalling Kshs. 100,000. The said amount was conditional so as to get a temporary stay. The application was disposed off.
9.If the stay was granted conditionally and later the application was disposed when the court dismissed it, what then is pending for the applicant.? Nothing of course except the appeal. There is no evidence of the appeal shown to this court.
10.The sum total therefore is that in the absence of any appeal or for that matter stay from the Court of Appeal, the application herein stands no chance.
11.The same is therefore dismissed with costs.
