Kampala: Rwenzori Bottling Company Limited has petitioned the High Court in Kampala seeking to recover 96 million shillings which it allegedly paid to the wrong landlord.

Through AF Mpanga and Company Advocates, Rwenzori sued Green Africa Recycling Limited, a company which interchangeably calls itself Green Africa Recycling SMC Limited which presented itself as the owners of the property located at plots 58, 59, and 63 on Kyambogo road.

Rwenzori is also suing Wilson Sendegeya, one of the officers working for the said company, and John Musoke Ssenyonga, who later came up to claim ownership of the same property.

The court records indicate that Rwenzori hired the mentioned premises on January 16, 2020, to operate a recycling facility and the tenancy agreement was supposed to continue up to January 25, 2021, with monthly payments of eight million Shillings exclusive of Value Added Tax.

Rwenzori noted that it kept paying rent through Sendegeya in line with the invoices made by Green Africa Recycling Company and used the premises without any interruptions until December 2020 when persons said to be acting on behalf of Musoke Ssenyonga locked up the premises claiming that the tenant had not paid rent for the whole year.

Court records indicate that after locking the premises, Rwenzori Bottling Company became aware that Sendegeya was a tenant under a separate two-year tenancy agreement with Ssenyonga. Evidence shows that the various officers of the company have since then engaged Ssenyonga directly or through his agents Sanjay Properties and a lawyer identified as Hashim Mugisha on the issue of how Rwenzori can get back its raw materials.

They also want the team to establish that the company actually paid rent to a tune of 96 million Shillings and to track Sendegeya down and produce him to Ssenyonga so that he can admit that he was paid and that the companies were not owing anything.

But after the engagements failed, Rwenzori reportedly communicated that it couldn’t pay rent twice for the same premises or continue to rent the premises beyond the originally planned period.

However, Ssenyonga maintained the demand for money and insisted that his rent must be paid thus continued holding Rwenzori’s assets valued at more than 60 million Shillings.

Now, Rwenzori further noted that it has lost 15 million Shillings in legal fees and production time for over four months after being denied access to its capital in the form of assets, inputs, and raw materials that were confiscated unlawfully by Ssenyonga. Rwenzori now wants the court to order Green Africa Recycling Company to refund 96 million Shillings and also be paid general, special and exemplary damages for the inconveniences it has gone through.
