Newly appointed grade one magistrates were told to keep their dignity

Supreme Court Judge, Stella Arach-Amoko has warned female judicial officers against nude protest, saying it taints their titles and the institutions image. 

"Please do not undress for any reason. There are better ways you can address your grudges. Such indecent displays give us a bad name," she said while addressing the newly appointed grade one magistrates at the Judicial Studies Institute. 

This comes four days after a research fellow at the Makerere Institute of Social Research (MISR), Stella Nyanzi, held a nude protest against the lockup of her office by Prof. Mahmood Mamdani, the institute's director. 

Amoko also asked the magistrates to desist from snatching married men because it soils the image of the judiciary. 

"Avoid getting into scandals. If you see that a man is married, leave him and look for a single man. Let us protect the name of the judiciary and the honour of our titles," she said. 

This also comes a few days after a medical doctor petitioned the Judicial Service Commission (JSC), accusing the Jinja court grade one magistrate, Phiona Birungi of trying to snatch her husband, who is also a practicing advocate. 

Though the case is still under investigations, Isaac Ssali Mugerwa, the lawyer in question, filed a divorce case against his wife, Julie Nabweteme, at Entebbe chief magistrates court early this week, accusing her of cruelty.
