Speaker Kadaga meets Judiciary over under staffing

KAMPALA- The Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga last evening met and received a petition from the Judicial Service Commission led by its Deputy Chairperson, Justice Faith Mwondha.

The Judicial Service Commission handed a petition to the Commission which raises the issue of understaffing in the Judiciary which affects the delivery of justice in the country.

Judicial Service Commission highlighted shortages of a number of officers required for High Court Judges, Registrars and Magistrates which continue to him few despite the increased case log across the country.

While receiving the petition from the Judicial Service Commission, Speaker Kadaga said that she was aware of human resource shortages in the Judicial Service and has written to the President about it.

Speaker Kadaga said that she is working with the Committee on Legal and Parliamentary Affairs to avail resources for the recruitment of more officers and to support the activities of the Judicial Services Commission.

Justice Mwondha said that she was hopeful that if Parliament availed more resources to the Judicial Services Commission, they will be able to recruit all the human resource needed to handle the programs in the Judiciary including and not limited to expedite disposal of cases which have stayed for long in court.

She said that if more judicial service officers are hired, they will be able to work on the big case log now before court and this will ensure timely delivery of Justice.
