Headnote and holding:

Stay of execution of judgment pending Appeal. The balance of convenience does not lie with the Applicant. However, in view of the Respondent averring in her affidavit that conditions can be imposed rather than have the money delivered to her pending appeal but not having canvassed her objections further by not making any submission in addition to her affidavit, the application for stay of execution is granted with conditions as per Orders below.

Dodin, J
