Brian Kirumira, a man who once masqueraded as a ‘Philanthropist’ has been given 14 days to file in defense in a case he is being accused of failing to pay Shs135 million.
The High Court Commercial Division Judge Anna Bitature heard on Tuesday that the Kirumira, famously known Bryan White had not filed his defense yet he was duly served by lawyers of businessman Majanja Kirumira [complainant] of Kireka based Majanja and Sons Enterprises.
Majanja claims that in 2018, he supplied the mysterious tycoon with tents worth Shs270 million, only for him to pay half of the full amount.
The tents were used at his Bryan White Foundation offices in Kampala.
Majanja says that Bryan White promised to clear the remaining balance within three months from the time of purchase but up to date he has never received a single penny.
The businessman further narrates that since then, whenever he calls the city tycoon to demand for his money, “He just issues threats to harm me, even death threats.”
“Despite several demands and reminders, the defendants have refused or ignored and neglected to clear their indebtedness to the plaintiff,” Majanja’s petition to court reads in parts.
As such the company wants court to compel Bryan White to pay them their money plus costs.
On the other hand, Bryan White says he can’t pay Majanja the balance because he supplied him with very poor quality tents that began tearing after three days of use.
