In a replying affidavit to the application by the deputy president seeking stay of the execution of the judgement of the court, Mr Adrian Gilbert Muteshi says that he was entitled to vacant possession of the suit property and payment of the money as compensation which has not been done.
Mr Muteshi says that the deputy president has either refused or neglected to comply with the orders of the court, but he has instead filed notice of appeal to challenge a part of the judgment, saying the move is meant deny him fruits of the judgment and yet he maliciously occupied his land for a period of 5 years.
In the appeal Ruto only questions the court order requiring him to pay Sh 5 million compensation and costs, saying its not clear whether the appeal will succeed and how long it take before its determined.
The deputy president was faulted by the court by failing to provide evidence of a sale agreements prove is allegation of being the bone fide purchaser.
The matter will be placed before Justice Ougo on 3 March 20014 for the determination as to whether stay will issue to stop the execution of the judgment.
