Choir sued over breach of contract

MASERU — Rajoc Hair and Beauty Salon is demanding M5 000 from Mohapeloa Singers, after the latter allegedly reneged on an agreement to perform at the Face of Rajoc beauty pageant in November last year.
The musical group was last week served with papers by law firm LR Malefane Chambers — acting on behalf of Rajoc Hair and Beauty Salon — demanding settlement within five days of their receipt.
The ultimatum — of which this paper has obtained a copy — was written on November 4 and received by Mohapeloa the following day.
It reads in part: “Client tells us that it had closed an agreement with your Mohapeloa Singers, in which it was agreed that Mohapeloa Singers would participate in the Face of Rajoc 2008. In terms of the agreement, failure to participate in the event visited on Mohapeloa Singers, enjoined it to pay an amount of M5 000 to client.”
LR Malefane Chambers gave Mohapeloa Singers five days to pay the amount, failure of which they would take them to court.
“Client instructs us to demand from Mohapeloa Singers, as we hereby do, money in the amount of M5 000, which money accrues only on failure of the Mohapeloa Singers to attend the event. Take notice that this amount should be paid on or before the lapse of five days.
“Failure to comply with this ultimatum will see us instructing a case in the Magistrate’s Court of Maseru, in which more money, together with costs, would be claimed.”
Mohapeloa Singers president Thabo Mokhuts’oane told the Lesotho Times they do not have the money to pay Rajoc Hair and Beauty Salon.
“We don’t have that money,” Mokhuts’oane said.
“In essence, it means we are not going to pay.”
Mokhuts’oane said they were prepared to defend themselves in the courts of law.
“Besides that, I want us to go to court and discuss this issue so they can tell us where they got it that we owe them,” he said.
