The Appointment’s Committee of Parliament has approved all seven judges recently appointed by President Yoweri Museveni to the Appellant and High Courts.

The President appointed two Court of Appeal judges including; the former Deputy Solicitor General, Christopher Gashirabake, and Jinja Resident Judge, Eva Luswata. 

Also appointed, were High Court judges who include; former Deputy Director of Law Development Centre, Florence Nakachwa Dollo, former Acting Chief Registrar of the Judiciary, Tom Chemutai, the former Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, Vincent Wagona, and former Assistant Director of Public Prosecutions. The others are Alice Kyomuhangi, and Lawrence Tweyanze, the former Deputy Registrar in the Department of Inspectorate of Courts.

The judges appeared before the committee chaired by Deputy Speaker Anita Among.
Their approval brings to 15 and 57, the total of Court of Appeal judges and High Court judges respectively. 

The nominees were approved because they did not have a bad track record.

Meanwhile, some committee members including the leader of Opposition Mathias Mpuuga and Bugiri Municipality MP Asuman Basalirwa who were Nakachwa’s students excused themselves from the proceeding due to a conflict of interest.
