The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) in accordance with Article 148 of the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda, which mandates it to appoint Judicial Officers at various levels, has appointed 47 people to the office of Magistrate Grade One in the Judiciary.

They include 17 Males and 30 Female.

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. 

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

Hon. Justice Benjamin I Kabiito, the Chairperson JSC communicated that 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.

In a bid to address staffing gaps in the Judiciary, the Judicial Service Commission will shortly advertise Three (3) positions of Justices of the Supreme Court, Fourteen (14) Judges of the High Court, Four (4) Deputy Registrars and Five (5) Assistant Registrars.

The Commission will shortly advertise (33) Chief Magistrate positions, (10) Senior Principal Magistrates Grade One, (18) Principal Magistrates Grade One and (26) Senior Magistrates Grade One.
