|Court Orders Microcare Health Limited to Pay Kadic Hospital Over Breach of Contract.|

The Commercial Division of the High Court on September 10, 2012, ordered a health insurance company, Microcare Health Limited, to pay over sh80m to Kadic Hospital Limited for breach of contract. The plaintiff (Kadic Hospital) terminated the contract after the defendant (Microcare Health Limited) issued two bouncing cheques of over sh17m, hence the law suit for breach of contract.
Hon. Justice Geoffrey Kiryabwire, the Head of the division, also rejected a counter claim in which Microcare Health Ltd had sought to recover sh30m as an overpayment against the hospital. The Hon. Judge strongly agreed with Mr. John Mary Kiwuuwa, the lawyer representing Kadic Hospital that the claim that Microcare Health Ltd made a year after the hospital had presented its demands for payment was an afterthought that could not be accepted by the court.
He also ordered that given the circumstances in which both sides managed their agreement, he would also grant nominal general damages of sh2m with 8% pa against Microcare Health Ltd from the date of Judgment till payment in full.
