President Museveni and DPP Abodo

President Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni has fulfilled his promise to prosecutors and all other officials under Jane Frances Abodo’s Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) after these public officers’ salaries were increased by huge margins, according to the recently released salary structure for the current (2022-2023) Financial Year. 

In April 2022, while presiding over the 5th Joan Kagezi Lecture in Kampala, Museveni promised to increase salaries of prosecutors and to fill all the staffing gaps in the ODPP.

Then, Museveni argued that government would establish timelines within which 500 more prosecutors will be recruited to support the current 300. He also noted that it was not a good idea to recruit more prosecutors before making sure that the salaries of the existing employees have been increased.

Museveni said that instead of recruiting more prosecutors and pay them poorly, he had decided that the current 300 prosecutors be paid well and overworked, adding that he was sure that with their stomachs full, DPP Abodo’s prosecutors would put in the necessary efforts.

And now, Museveni’s government has done just that. Except for Abodo, the Director of Public Prosecutions, who salary has been maintained at Shs22.5m (22,500,000), the other officials have been given huge pay enhancments.

The salary of a Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions has been raised from Shs 13.86m (13,860,000) to Shs20m (20,000,000) while the salary of a Principal Assistant Director of Public Prosecutions has been increased from Shs8.762m (8,762,800) to Shs13.8m (13,800,000).

From Shs8m (8,027,400), a Senior Assistant Director of Public Prosecutions will now be earning Shs12.5m (12,500,000) every month, while from Shs7.8m (7,828,704), an Assistant Director of Public Prosecutions will be pocketing Shs10.5m (10,500,000) on a monthly basis.

The salary of a Chief State Attorney has also been raised from Shs7.8m (7,828,704) to Shs9.8m (9,800,000) while that of a Senior Principal State Attorney has been increased  from Shs5.2m  (5,168,880) to Shs8.6m (8,590,000).
