Monitor sues KCCA over adverts

Kampala Capital City Authority has been dragged to court by Monitor Publications Ltd (MPL) forĀ failure to pay for adverts that ran in its newspapers.

MPL is seeking Shs660 million from KCCA for 120 pages of adverts that were run in its papers on the 22nd of March 2013.

Through its lawyers of Nangwala and Ruzida company advocates, monitor says that it received instructions from the KCCA corporate affairs manager Jonathan Kyeyune to publish a notification of outstanding property dues from Rubaga and central division.

However on demand, KCCA said monitor had to comply with the new internal procurement procedures to which monitor said was not liable hence petitioning the commercial court.

KCCA has been given 10 days to file its defense before Commercial Court Judge Billy Kainamura.
