1.Before me is an application dated October 3, 2022 where the applicant client seeks orders of stay of execution of the judgment and decree herein pending the hearing and determination of the appeal. The applicant avers that it was dissatisfied with the judgment, hence the intention to appeal and to this end, they have duly filed a notice of appeal. The applicant avers that their appeal has high chances of success, and if successful, the same may be rendered nugatory if the orders are not granted. The applicant is ready and willing to abide by any conditions set out by the court.
2.The application is opposed vide the grounds of opposition and a replying affidavit both dated October 11, 2022 where it is argued that there is no automatic right to appeal, since leave to appeal ought to have been sought. The advocate contends that he is capable of restitution in the event the appeal is successful.
3.I have considered all the arguments raised herein. The relief of stay of execution pending Appeal is governed by order 42 rule 6 of the Civil Procedure Rules, and the same is discretionary. See Loice Khachendi Onyango v Alex Inyangu & another  eKLR.
4.In the case of Equity Bank Limited v West Link MBO Limited Civil Application no 78 of 2011 cited in Dickson Muricho Muriuki v Timothy Kagondu Muruiki & 6 others  eKLR, it was held that;
5.The issue of the validity and strength of the appeal is not the province of this court. It is enough that the applicant/client has made his intention to appeal vide the alleged notice of appeal.
6.I proceed to give a conditional stay of execution of the Judgment in the following terms:1.An order of stay of execution of the judgment herein is given for a period of 90 days.2.The applicant is directed to deposit the sum of ksh. 580,191 in court within a period of 21 days otherwise the orders of stay shall lapse.
