11 New High Court Judges Sworn In By President Museveni

In order to keep their careers going, President Museveni advised the 11 newly sworn in High Court Judges to be transparent.

He made these remarks yesterday as he presided over the swearing-in at State House in Entebbe.

The judges are Flavia Nabakooza, Philip Willebrord Mwaka, Amos Kwizera, David Samson Lwokya Makumbi, Dr Christine Akello Echookit, Jamson Karemera Karemani, Jacqueline Mwondha, Aisha Naluzze Batala, Rosette Comfort Kania, Patience Emily Tumusiime Rubagumya, and Farouk Lubega.

“This is a very good opportunity for you, the future is in front of you, don’t be tempted by any shortcuts because I have been watching people from the 1960s who made mistakes when they got power. Don’t contaminate your future, you have the opportunity, don’t spoil it,” the President said.

The President further assured the Judiciary that their target of acquiring adequate manpower to ensure justice for all will be assumed.

However though, he explained that increasing the Judiciary’s size is connected to the process of recovery, growth and transformation of Uganda’s economy.

What I have been explaining to everybody is that whatever the Government does depends on the economy, and this is what I would like all citizens of Uganda to understand. The Judiciary must understand the political economy of the country so that we don’t keep arguing the way forward,” Museveni noted.

For adding 11 more qualified individuals, Chief Justice Alfonse Owiny-Dollo hailed President Museveni for strengthening the Judiciary of Uganda. He said this addition brings the number of High Court judges to 81, slightly over 50% of the requirement.
