PS/SJ, CR Inspect Katakwi, Soroti High Court Construction Site

The Permanent Secretary/Secretary to the Judiciary, Dr Pius Bigirimana and the Chief Registrar, HW Sarah Langa Siu have spent the better of the day carrying out inspections in Soroti and Katakwi.

They were accompanied by Eng. Dr Christopher Ebal, the Commissioner Engineering and Estates, who led them through the construction site of Soroti High Court and Katakwi Chief Magistrates Court.

The inspection at the construction site of Soroti High Court followed a recommendation of a meeting held in February where it was agreed that the court hall for the upcoming High Court premises be expanded.

During that meeting, the Resident Judge Hon. Justice Dr. Henry Peter Adonyo proposed some significant changes to address the limited space that necessitated approval by management

It is against this background that the Permanent Secretary and the Chief Registrar visited the site to appreciate the prevailing circumstances in order to make a final decision regarding the proposals. 

Following the inspection, the two agreed with the Judge's proposal to expand the court hall size and provide for other facilities intended to enhance access to Justice.

At Katakwi CM Court, the PS/SJ and CR directed that the latrine that had been set up close to the courthouse be relocated. Further, that the same be turned into water-borne toilets. The court hall is also to be adjusted.

The Acting Chief Magistrate HW Justine Gumtwero Olal and HW Agnes Abalo were commended for the good work they are doing at the Court.
