Kampala central MP sued over unpaid car

The company contends that Nsereko on behalf of the construction company personally signed the sale agreement and the vehicle was delivered to him.

The Kampala central Member of Parliament (MP), Muhammed Nsereko has been dragged to court for failing to pay for a Toyota land cruiser he acquired on loan

Aisha Trading Limited, a private company which deals in importing and exporting Japanese cars  filed a suit in court, claiming that it is the registered owner of a blue Toyota Land Cruiser Prado registration number UAR 333B, which Nsereko and  a construction company, Five Star Investments Limited, jointly purchased on credit.

"On October 16, 2012, the plaintiff (Aisha Trading) entered into an agreement with the defendants (Nsereko and Five Star) for sale of the said motor vehicle with the defendants for sale of the said motor vehicle at a sum of sh50m to be paid in one lumpsum or in installments," reads the suit.

The company contends that Nsereko on behalf of the construction company personally signed the sale agreement and the vehicle was delivered to him.

However, despite numerous calls, Nsereko has allegedly, since 2012 dodged and vehemently refused to pay the sh50m.

"Due to this, the plaintiff who imports and exports Japanese vehicles suffered tremendous loss," the company states in its suit filed on June 8, 2016 through Rwakafuuzi and Co. Advocates.

The company now wants court to award it general damages at an interest rate of 24 percent per annum from the date of purchase of the car till payment in full.

Meanwhile, Court has summoned Nsereko to file his defense to the allegations within 15 days, failure of which the court will proceed to hear the case and issue judgment in his absence.

 

"Whereas the plaintiff has instituted a petition against you, you are hereby required to file a defence on the said petition within 15 days from the date of service of summons on you. Should you fail to file defence on or before the date, the plaintiff may proceed with the suit and judgment maybe given in your absence," reads the summon letter.
