Beti Kamya sued over 2011 election campaign posters

Betty  Namisango Kamya has been dragged to the Commercial Court by a supplier of campaign posters used in the 2011 General Elections, over a sh54.2 million debt.

Bakka Abubakari trading as Najab Printers and Stationers claims that on the November 21, 2010 Kamya wrote to him asking him to make posters on credit for her Party’s candidates, who were contesting in the 2011 general elections. Kamya is President for Uganda Federal Alliance and now Minister for Kampala.

Bakka says that Kamya accompanied her order with signed notices which candidates presented to him before posters could be made,and on January 23, 2011 he delivered posters for 138 candidates worth sh64.2million.

However Bakka argues that on January 25,2011, Kamya only paid sh10m, leaving a balance of sh54.2m that she undertook to complete by 2015, but despite numerous reminders, she has not honoured her part of the agreement.

Its on this basis that Bakka through Muslim Centre for Justice and Law petitioned the Commercial Court seeking orders compelling Kamya to pay the said money and damages for loss and inconvenience.

The court is yet to summon the Minister to file her defence.
