The office of the DPP has in recent past years been facing challenges such as understaffing and staff being stagnant in workplaces for more than ten years without promotions and poor remuneration.

However, a few months ago while presiding over the 6th Annual Joan Kagezi Memorial Lecture in Munyonyo, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni announced a tax waiver on all salaries for Prosecutors attached to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and a salary increment, so as to match with their counterparts with same qualifications in the Justice system.

Last year, during the national symposium of prosecutors, the DPP revealed that she didn’t have offices in 54 districts. Further, she revealed that 73 courts countrywide did not have a prosecutor attached to them on a full time basis due to lack of suffi0cient prosecutors.

As of last year, the office of the DPP had 325 state prosecutors against the approved structure of 862, representing 40 percent of the vacancies filled.

The Justice Ministry has since assured the Prosecutors that the government is committed to improving their welfare and it is not as broke as Finance Minister Matia Kasaija claims, but a matter of the government’s priorities.
