Kampala — Galaxy International School has sued a parent of four pupils over Shs80m in school fees arrears.

In the suit before High Court, the school accountant, Ms Margaret Naimanye, contends that they enrolled Mr Clement Rugomwa's four children during the 2016-2017 academic year.

In her sworn affidavit supporting the suit, Ms Naimanye says according to the terms and conditions of admission and enrolment, Mr Rugomwa was expected to pay the tuition and other administrative fees for his children during the period of enrolment at the school.

Ms Naimanye states that Mr Rugomwa paid the tuition fees for some time, but later defaulted and failed or refused to clear the balance, despite repeated reminders.

"Following the failure of the defendant to pay his children's tuition arrears and outstanding fees, his children were consequently dismissed from the school," the suit documents state.

As a result, Ms Naimanye says Mr Rugomwa is indebted to the school to a tune of $21,602 (about Shs80m) which debt he has refused or neglected to pay.

"Through its employees and lawyers, the plaintiff (Galaxy International School) has made several demands for payment of the outstanding amount but these have all gone unheeded by the defendant," the documents further read.

Mr Rugomwa was summoned to defend himself against the allegations in 15 days from December 14, 2018.

The file has been allocated to Justice Lydia Mugabe for hearing.
