The deployed team was sworn-in by the Chief Justice, Bart. M. Katureebe, on Friday last week.
“Most of the judicial officers are transferred from one place to another based on the workload assessments of one station compared to the other,” Namboyo said, adding that the judicial officers who have been in the system shall move to new stations on November 1.”
