The Chief Justice of Uganda, Alphonse Owiny Dollo, has announced the appointment of Ereemye Jumire James Mawanda as the new Public Relations Officer (PRO) for the Judiciary.

Mawanda, the current acting registrar in charge of magistrates affairs and data management replaces Jameson Karemani Karemera, who was last month appointed as a judge of the High Court by President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. Karemani served as judiciary PRO since 2019. 

According to the statement issued by the judiciary principal communications officer Sheila Wamboga, Mawanda now takes on the registry of communications and public relations to supervise a team of professional communications officers.

The letter signed by Chief Justice Owiny Dollo officially assigned Mawanda as the Public Relations Officer of the Judiciary, in addition to his existing duties as a Registrar.

This appointment reflects the evolving roles and responsibilities within the Judiciary and aims to ensure a smooth transition in the PR department following Karemani’s elevation to the High Court.

Langa Siu welcomed the appointment, saying the new PRO will be instrumental in fostering public awareness and the image of the judiciary in line with the judiciary strategic plan five. She has also commended Karemani for the great job done as PRO of the judiciary.
