Judge Alphonse Chigamoi Owiny-Dollo has been named Uganda’s next Deputy Chief Justice.
Justice Owiny-Dollo replaces Steven Kavuma who retires next month. His appointment was communicated by President Museveni to the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga in an August 18 letter.
In the same communication Museveni named former Director of Public Prosecutions Ruchard Buteera and Judge Paul Mugamba to the Supreme Court bench.
Their nominations will take effect upon receiving approval of the House Committee on Appointments.
