Angellah Katatumba has dragged Kampala Sun to court on defamation charges and is currently demanding for a whooping 200 Million lump-sum in compensation for the damages inflicted on her and a front page apology as well.
She claims before publishing her story, a Kampala Sun journalist identified as Solomon Muleyi contacted her and she made sure she explained to him the actual truth and what she least expected is the journalist publishing a false story about her. She further goes ahead and says she has lost loyalty and many other privileges her customers had in her hence, finding it hard to trust her again.
When contacted she had the following to say:
“I seldom respond to tabloids. After all, words like “allegedly” exonerate journalists behind these stories and personally, I’ve never gone after any media house because, I understand that it’s one of many ways for certain journalists and media houses in this town to make their money.
With that said, the most recent Kampala Sun stories published about me involve larger issues.
The Kampala Sun journalist, Solomon Muleyi, called me prior to publishing these stories and I gave him DETAILED accounts of the truth.
To my surprise and shock, this “journalist” decided to write distorted versions of the stories that have hurt my reputation and businesses in more ways than one.
The irresponsible and malicious tone that stated obvious lies as facts are at the very least negligent and more importantly illegal.
Luckily we live in a world where illegal acts are punishable by law.”
Meanwhile, Kampala sun lawyers are expected in court anytime soon. The photo below shows the letter drafted by a City advocate identified as Mulindwa & Athiang advocates.
