GRAND ALLIACE LIKITED VS MR WILFRED LUCAS TARIMO AND 4 OTHERS, civil application no 229 of 2020.

This case provide the issue attachment of decree of judgement debtor and ground for review in court of appeal as well as principles for review. The court had this to say:

In exercising its powers in review, the Court is guided by a number of 

principles including but not limited to the following; One, the review 

jurisdiction is not by way of appeal and its purpose is not to provide a back door method to unsuccessful litigants to re-argue their case or seek a reappraisal of the entire evidence on record; 

Two, the power of review is 

limited in scope and is normally used for correction of a mistake but not to 

substitute a view in law;

 Three, a judgment of a final court is final and review of such judgment is an exception; 

Four, in review, a mere 

disagreement with the view of the judgment cannot be a ground for review  and where a point has already been dealt with and answered parties  cannot challenge the impugned judgment in the guise that an alternative  view is possible under the review jurisdiction;

 Five, an erroneous view 

justifies an appeal and the power of review can therefore not be exercised  on the ground that the decision was erroneous on merit; 

Six, it will not be a sufficient ground for review that another judge would have taken a different view, nor can it be a ground for review that the court proceeded on incorrect exposition of the law and Seven, a manifest error on the face of the record should be an error that is obvious and patent and not something which can be established by a long drawn process of reasoning  on points which may conceivably be two opinions.
