The former minister has been issued summons to file his defence within 15 days
NRM vice chairman for the Eastern Region, Capt. Michael Mukula, has been dragged to the Commercial Court for failure to pay over sh82m for the chopper he hired during the campaign period.
Court documents indicate that on November 17th, 2015, Mukula through his flight company Sun Air Ltd hired a jet from Flex Air Charters at sh500,000 per flight hour.
Flex Air Charters says as of March 2016, Mukula had accumulated arrears to the tune of sh82m which he has refused to pay to date despite repeated demands.
The company now says it has suffered untold loss and has been inconvenienced by Mukula's actions for the last eleven months hence seeking court redress to compel the former minister pay the said money with an interest at the current commercial rate.
The court's registrar Thaddeus Opesen has issued summons ordering Mukula to file his defence within 15 days.
