Chief Justice Alfonse Owiny-Dollo has tasked the seven newly-appointed justices of the Court of Appeal and the High Court to always ensure justice for all.

He quoted Article 126 of the Constitution that states that judicial power is derived from the people and shall be exercised by the courts in the name of the people and in conformity with the law, values norms and aspirations.

โ€œTo achieve these constitutional dictates, it is imperative that we work together for the good ย of our people while observing the principals of our judicial creed that underpins our judicial code of conduct,โ€ Justice Owiny-Dollo said.

He emphasized the principals of independence, impartiality, integrity, propriety, equality, competence and diligence as some of the judicial codes of conduct.

Those appointed to High Court were Tom Chemutai, Lawrence Tweyanze, Vincent Wagona, Alice Komuhangi, and Florence Nakachwa, also the wife to the Chief Justice.

The appointment of three justices to the Court of Appeal now brings the total number of justices to the second-highest court in East Africa to 17.
