To aver and prove ‘readiness and willingness’ to perform an obligation to pay money, in terms of a contract, plaintiff would have to make specific statements in plaint and adduce evidence to show availability of funds to make payment in time. If plaintiff does not have sufficient funds with him to discharge his obligations in terms of a contract, which requires payment of money, plaintiff would have to specifically plead how funds would be available to him.
