RL Extrem Investment Limited has sued Kasama PF member of parliament Kelvin Sampa in the Lusaka High Court for allegedly failing to pay over K2 million after supplying him with security boots.
The company is claiming payment of K2,014,300, interest and costs.
According to a statement of claim filed in the Lusaka High Court, September 21, RL Extrem Investment Limited stated that it was involved in general supply of goods in Lusaka and elsewhere in Zambia.
It stated that by contracts in writing dated November, 2019, it supplied Sampa 226 security boots at K550 per pair totalling K124,300 on one hand and 4,200 security and safety boots at K430 per pair totaling K1,890,000 altogether coming to K2,014,300.
RL Extrem Investment stated that it was a term of the contract that upon delivery of the goods, Sampa would pay 50 percent of the total amount.
It added that it delivered the goods during the course of November, 2019, which were duly received and acknowledged by Sampa.
The company, however, stated that Sampa failed to pay the 50 per cent or any other sum, as agreed.
“By a demand letter dated June 23, 2020, addressed to Sampa’s advocates, the company, through its advocates, made its first demand in writing for the payment of K2,014,300. The defendant has either failed, refused or otherwise neglected to settle the claimed amounts,” read the claim.
The company stated that it was entitled to claim the said sum of K2,014,300, together with interest and costs.
