The Chairperson of Parliament's Committee on Legal and Parliamentary Affairs, Hon.Jacob Oboth Oboth assured the Judiciary that the Administration of the Judiciary Bill is on track. "It is not true that the Administration of the Judiciary Bill has been rejected. Some members of the (NRM) Caucus just raised concerns about the bit to do with payment of 100 percent salary to retired judges," he said.

"The good thing is that the Committee Report on the Bill is not a bad one. What you need to know is that members of the NRM Caucus also need some awareness about the intentions of the Bill. Ideally, things are not as bad as they have been portrayed."

Hon. Oboth made the remarks during an interface between the Judiciary and the Committee on Tuesday as the Judiciary presented its Policy Statement for 2019/20 FY to the Committee.

Permanent Secretary/Secretary to the Judiciary,Mr. Kagole E. Kivumbi, led a 21-man delegation to Parliament for an appearance before the Parliament's Committee on Legal and Parliamentary Affairs.
