FULL LIST: Judiciary appoints, transfers registrars and magistrates in latest reshuffle

The new officers, all appointed in an acting capacity, include 14 Deputy Registrars, 8 Assistant Registrars and 20 Chief Magistrates.

KAMPALA, UGANDA: The judiciary has appointed new judicial officers and redeployed several others at different levels in the latest reshuffle.

The new officers, all appointed in an acting capacity, include 14 Deputy Registrars, 8 Assistant Registrars and 20 Chief Magistrates.

Speaking of the most recent appointments and re-deployments, Chief Justice Owiny-Dollo highlighted that the recent appointments have enhanced access to justice by the people.

He noted that ever since the judiciary unveiled its transformation agenda and developed the judiciary strategic plan to facilitate the realization of the said agenda, the new deployments will go a long way in attaining the institution’s core mission of efficiently and effectively administering justice.

The Chief Registrar, HW Sarah Langa Siu, said the new appointments are meant to take judicial services closer to the people while the deployments and transfers were also informed by caseload and enhanced efforts to eliminate case backlog.

“To this end Courts with high caseloads like Nakawa, Mbarara and Mengo Chief Magistrates Court with a caseload of 3,766; 3,323 and 2,297 cases respectively received additional Chief Magistrates,” she said in a statement released on Monday, June 5, 2023.

Langa further added that the High Court Division Registries like Commercial, Land and Family with high caseload of 1,689; 2,874 and 2,354 cases were beefed up with additional Deputy and Assistant Registrars to expedite the hearing of interlocutory matters.

“I am equally happy to report that all the 20 High Court Circuits now have Deputy Registrars or Assistant Registrars. This will now allow the Chief Magistrates who have been caretaking these Circuits to focus on their dockets,’’ noted Langa.

Ms Langa further said among the other priorities of the Judiciary is strengthening the Inspectorate of Courts.

She said two additional Deputy Registrars have been deployed in the Registry bringing the number to five. The Chief Inspector of Courts is Hon. Justice Stephen Musota.

In the Registry are the Registrar, HW Kwizera Amos and five Deputies – HW Gabriel Angualia, HW Helen Ajio, HW Dorothy Ssempala Lwanga, HW Samuel Twakyire and HW Agnes Alum.

The deployments take immediate effect while the transfers are effective 1st July 2023.
