In the recent letter making the rounds on social media, Ministry of Health hired Precision Media Ltd to a produce media ads following increased number of positive truck drivers. The company contacted Bad Black since she perfectlysuited the act the Ministry was targeting.
From the same letter, Bad Black and Precision Media made an oral agreement that they would organize for her a visit to President Museveni with whom she would discuss the amounts of the advert and payment.
Bad Black is now demanding shs 500 million as a consideration of the paid advert and shs 50 million for damages and inconveniences within a period of 14 days.
Now Health ministry has tasked Precision Media- owned by a one Tendo- to ‘solve the Bad Black issue as soon as possible’.
