Frank Gashumba, a renowned social media activist and a critic on several social economic issues has vowed to take New Vision over what he terms ‘demeaning’ information about himself, family and business by its sister company Kampala Sun.

A bitter Gashumba took to his Facebook wall highlighting of how he has instructed a team of lawyers to counter New Vision attempts to ‘negate and undermine’ his credibility and personality.

Gashumba says New Vision is expected to be fair and balanced or at least pretend to.

Gashumba wrote: “They have called me all sorts of names and the most recent one they reported in their newspaper that i was evicted from my office,”

“These stories are deliberately crafted to undermine my integrity. The said office is is open from Monday to Friday,”

“Sometime this year, the same newspaper published my face on the front page saying that i am a wanted person in Kampala which was very false.”

Gashumba further wrote: Owing to these defamatory and deliberate statements against me which were read by millions of people across the globe. I strongly demand the following:

  1. A sastifactory apology.
    Damages and compensation for the unnecesary inconvience,loss of reputation, loss of opportunities, anxiety, mental anguish, psychological torture, emotional distress and costs amounting to UGX 500,000,000 (Uganda Shillings Five Hundred Million Only)

Below is Gashumba’s post:

FRANK GI have instructed a team of Lawyers to take New Vision to Court, on several occasion, the New Vision through its sister company Kampala Sun has unprofessionally and in a manner that is demeaning, belittling, malicious, biased affected me, my family and several business ventures that i am involved in.

They have called me all sorts of names and the most recent one they reported in their news paper that i was evicted from my office.

These stories are deliberately crafted to undermine my integrity. The said office is is open from Monday to Friday.

It is of regret that a media house like New Vision can decide to trend in false hoods and yellow journalism.

Sometime this year, the same news paper published my face on the front page saying that i am a wanted person in kampala which was very false.

It is an attempt to negate Frank Gashumba and undermine his credibility and personality. New Vision is expected to be fair and balanced or atleast pretend to.

Enough is Enough.
Let the Courts of Law sort us out.

Owing to these defamatory and deliberate statements against me which were read by millions of people across the globe. I strongly demand the following:

  1. A satisfactory apology.
    2. Damages and compensation for the unnecessary inconvenience,loss of reputation, loss of opportunities, anxiety, mental anguish, psychological torture, emotional distress and costs amounting to UGX 500,000,000 (Uganda Shillings Five Hundred Million Only)
