Former justice of the Supreme Court of Uganda, George Kanyeihamba and a Chinese businessman are locked in a sh300m feud over breach of contract on a residential property located in Entebbe.

On  June 25, Kanyeihamba  filed a civil suit at the Land division of the High Court in Kampala against Yue Kong.

Kanyeihamba, now a practicising advocate, accuses the Chinese national of damaging the property located on Plot 30, Lugard Road, Entebbe Municipality.

Through the firm G.W Kanyeihamba and Company Advocates, he states that this year on February 18, he signed a tenancy agreement with Kong.

He contends that the terms of the agreement stipulated that the house was to be used  for hotel business.

However, Kanyeihamba laments that Kong, without his authorisation, converted the premises from a residential to a commercial property.

“The plaintiff shall contend that by reason of the acts of the defendant, the plaintiff  has  lost the value of his property to the tune of sh300mand will pray  to court to grant him compensation that sum,” the plaint states.

Kanyeihamba also alleges that he has not been paid rent since May this year.

Court has ordered Kong to file his defence within 15 days from the date of receipt of the court summons.

Kong has been cautioned to heed, lest judgement is passed in his absence.

The case file has been allocated to Justice Monica Mugenyi. However, a hearing date is yet to be scheduled.
