LIST: Judiciary Appoints New Magistrates

The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has announced the appointment of new 47 judicial officers at the level of Magistrate Grade One in the ranks of the Judiciary.

JSC, which derives its mandate to appoint judicial officers from Article 148 of the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda, has appointed 17 male and 30 female grade one magistrates.

“The appointments were an outcome of a JSC Meeting which was held on the 28th of October 2021, at the Commission’s headquarters in Kampala,” said JSC in a statement.

“The new appointees have undergone a series of competence tests as well as oral interviews by the Commission.”

According to Justice Benjamin Kabiito, the Chairperson of the JSC, the appointments were the largest number of judicial officers ever appointed by the Commission in one go.

“The recruitment is in fulfillment of the expanded Judiciary structure whose goal is to have Magistrate Grade Ones deployed at every county. This will improve access to justice for People in a county and reduce litigation,” further noted the commission in its statement.
