Former NACADA boss John Mututho is involved in a KSh7 million battle with Naivasha Member of Parliament (MP) Jayne Kihara.
In the latest ruling by the High Court, Mututho has been ordered to wait for one more year before he pursues full payment of the debt.
The costs were granted to Mututho following a 2008 suit which challenged his election as Naivasha MP.
Justice Joel Ngugi issued the new orders to allow for MP Kihara to file her appeal with the Court of Appeal.
Justice Ngugi, however, also issued mandatory orders to MP Kihara concerning the payment of the debt.
The MP will be required to settle half the amount in the interim, and before she files her petition with the CoA.
The MP will now be required to pay Sh3.75 million to Mututho, pending the hearing and determination of her appeal.
