Ugandan court orders woman to pay back former fiancé for breach of promise to marry


A Ugandan court has ordered a woman to pay her former fiancé over USh10 million ($2,700) in compensation for breaking her promise to marry him.

Richard Tumwine, a teacher, sued his former lover Fortunate Kyarikunda after she backed out of their promise to marry agreement, having received financial support from Tumwine, including sponsorship for a diploma in law.

The court ruled in favor of Tumwine, ordering Kyarikunda to reimburse the USh9.4 million he spent on her education, pay USh1 million in damages for the psychological pain caused by the breakup, and cover Tumwine’s legal expenses.

The court rejected Kyarikunda’s argument that she broke the agreement due to her parents’ objections to the marriage.
