Client takes on Fraine Supermarket over Valentine’s Day hamper after wife leaves

By Executive Editor


A client has notified Fraine Supermarket over an intention to sue over Valentine’s Day hamper. 

On February 14, 2024, Augustine Kyoobe, walked into Fraine Supermarket in Ntinda to purchase a Valentine’s Day gift hamper for his lovely wife.

Kyoobe, a resident of Najeera-Buwate picked out a gift hamper already packed and wrapped containing various items such as ballons, chocolate, champagne, wine, a bear, among others, which he subsequently paid for at the cost of Shs  140,100.

On reaching home, he presented the gift hamper to his lovely wife to wish her a happy Valentine’s Day, which she opened with a lot of love and excitement. To her dismay, and to the client’s surprise, she found a message card scribbled with love words (a love note) that the client had no knowledge of.

“That this greatly angered our client’s wife, who accused our client of cheating on her, and despite several explanations from our client that he simply bought the hamper from your supermarket, she packed her clothes and walked out of their matrimonial home, visibly angered, heartbroken, in tears, and leaving behind our client in the night to tender to an 8 (eight) month old baby and 5 (five) year old child,” writes Kyoobe through his lawyers of Mukiibi, Nakitende & Co. Advocates. The letter of intention to sue was delivered to the establishment on February 15, 2024.

“This grossly negligent and obnoxious act by the staff of your supermarket has terribly broken our client’s home and family, causing him and his wife emotional damage and mental anguish, not to speak of the psychological torture caused to their two little children, witnessing their mother walk out on them, terribly heartbroken and in tears.”

Kyoobe now demands a written apology to him and his wife in a newspaper of wide national circulation, apologizing for the gross negligent actions of Fraine Supermarket staff. 

“We further demand that you pay our client Ugx.5,000,000 (Ugandan Shillings Five Million Only) for the mental turmoil and emotional anguish caused to his entire family, plus the financial burden/ cost he is incurring by dropping off his eight (8) month old baby in day care effective today until his wife agrees to return home, since he has to report to work in order to keep providing for his family. TAKE FURTHER NOTICE should you fail to fulfill the above demands within a period of seven (7) working days from the date of receipt of this letter, we have instructions to institute a suit against you for damages caused and costs incurred by our client’s family, plus costs of our legal services, We trust that you shall give this matter the due attention it deserves,” adds the demand.

By press time, Fraine Supermarket was yet to respond to the matter.
