1.The applicant, Maseno University Savings and Credit Co- operative Society Limited, filed a claim against the respondent, Stima Savings and Credit Co-operative Limited, in Co-operative Tribunal Case No. 32 of 2017 seeking to enforce a share transfer agreement entered into on 9th January 2016.
2.By its judgment delivered on 12th January 2018, the Tribunal awarded the applicant general damages in the sum of KShs. 2,500,000 against the respondent. It also ordered that the applicant do pay to the respondent KShs. 43,057,365 together with interest thereon on account of a loan advanced to the applicant, less the sum awarded in general damages.
3.Dissatisfied with the decision of the Tribunal, the applicant appealed to the High Court in Nairobi HCCA No. 4 of 2018. In its judgment dated 15th September 2020, the High Court (Grace Nzioka, J.) set aside the judgement of the Tribunal and substituted therefor an order for specific performance of the share transfer agreement aforesaid on the terms therein specified. Aggrieved by the judgment and decree of the High Court, the applicant applied for review vide its Notice of Motion dated 29th October 2020, which was dismissed by a ruling dated 22nd July 2021 against which the applicant has appealed to this Court.
4.Before us is the applicant’s Notice of Motion dated 9th August 2021 presumably made under Rule 5(2) (b) of this Court’s Rules seeking, inter alia: stay of the orders made on 22nd July 2021 dismissing its application for review; stay of execution of the orders made in determination of its appeal to the High Court; leave to appeal; and that the costs of its application be in the cause.
5.We take note of the grounds of appeal set out in the applicant’s Memorandum of Appeal dated 9th August 2021, which clearly show that the applicant seeks to appeal the High Court decision dismissing its application for review. It is that decision in the Ruling of Grace Nzioka, J. dated 22nd July 2021 that we are now asked to stay. We hasten to observe that the learned Judge’s orders dismissing the applicant’s Motion for review of her judgment constitute negative orders incapable of being stayed.
6.This Court in Co-operative Bank of Kenya Limited vs.Banking Insurance & Finance Union (Kenya)  eKLR held that:
7.Likewise, the Court in George Ole Sangui & 12 others vs. Kedong Ranch Limited  eKLR held that:
8.As regards the prayer for leave to appeal, we take note of the fact that there is an appeal already lodged, and in which the instant application is made. There is nothing on record to suggest that leave to appeal had been granted. Having considered the grounds of appeal, including the contention that: the High Court’s decision of Grace Nzioka, J. manifested contradictions between the reasoning and the orders granted; and that the application for review of the learned Judge’s decision was determined by a different Judge, we form the view that it would only be fair and just to grant leave as sort.
9.Having carefully considered the applicant’s Motion, the affidavits in support and in reply thereto, the impugned Ruling, the written submissions of learned counsel for the applicant and learned counsel for the respondent, and having heard both counsel, we reach the inescapable conclusion that:a.the application for stay of execution of the impugned Ruling fails and is hereby dismissed;b.leave be and is hereby granted to the applicant to appeal; andc.costs of this application be costs in the appeal.
