Annual judges' conference

On the final day of the 22nd annual judges' conference being held at Méstil Hotel in Kampala, High Court Judge Susan Okalanyi queried why the problem of drivers in the Judiciary is not addressed.

"I almost lost my life going to a session on Hoima Road. I’m yet to receive a chauffeur and not an ordinary driver. On security guards, I am one of the privileged few to have four guards, others have two. I’m not saying that this is an entitlement for spoilt 'brats', but according to the work we do, there is a reason why we need these guards,” she said.

The conference is being held under the theme, Discharging the Mandate of the Judiciary: Towards Modern, Professional and Effective Judiciary

Miriam Namutebi captured the moments
