Former TV personality Sheilah Gashumba and boyfriend Marcus ‘God’s Plan’ Sempijja’ have slapped Urban TV’s Tina Fierce with a fine of 400 million shillings plus an apology for damaging their image. Since last week, Sheila waged a war on the Scoop on Scoop presenter accusing her of talking falsehoods about her leading to demand notice of intention to sue.
“You have on several occasions with our wanton disregard to our client’s rights maliciously attacked them through your Television programme called Scoop on Scoop which airs on Urban Television every Monday to Friday” reads the notice by their lawyers Balondemu & Co. Advocates. The notice goes on to show how the said programme has led to the suffering of the couple.
“Because of the aforesaid uncouth content transmitted both in print and electronic media against the personalities of our clients by yourself, our clients have gone through untold mental suffering, rebuke and anguish owing to the fact that the said publications have continuously lowered their reputation within the estimation of the right thinking members of the society.”
The motormouthed Vision Group employee now has 2 weeks to respond or else face court proceedings. “Owing to the above, the purpose of this letter hereof is to demand as we hereby do that you should immediately issue an apology retraction all the false stories perpetuated yourself against our clients and additionally compensate our clients with a sum of UGX. 400,000,000 (Uganda Shillings Four Hundred Million) for the suffering caused to our clients courtesy of your reckless utterances within 14 days from receipt of this demand hereof.
