The Deputy Chief Justice of Uganda, Richard Buteera, has stated that by commissioning the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal buildings, they will be saving UGX 6 billion in annual rent, which the institution had been paying.

He made these remarks on April 18, 2024, while president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni was commissioning the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal at the judiciary headquarters in Kampala.

Justice Buteera said that, on behalf of all justices and support staff, they were happy to have a home where they can permanently sit without interruptions from other businesses that are not related to court activities.

“My chambers at Twed Towers were above a restaurant and a bar; it could be noisy at times. But now, it is no more,” Buteera stated.

He thanked the Government of Uganda, headed by His Excellency the President of the Republic of Uganda, Gen. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, for the strong financial and moral support offered to the Judiciary in respect of infrastructural development and other activities of the Judiciary aimed at improving access to justice.

Buteera also commended the Permanent Secretary/Secretary to the Judiciary and his team of site supervisors and engineers, especially Eng. Ebal, who put up a team in ensuring that all the architectural designs and plans were implemented on the ground as drawn in the structural plans for those court premises.

Buteera further described the commissioning as a historic milestone in the history of the Judiciary of Uganda. He also thanked the president for giving the judiciary the first electric bus.

The event was attended by senior officials from the executive, judiciary, and parliament, as well as development partners from the judiciary, justices of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal, judges of the High Court, both retired and in service, and senior administrators who turned up to witness the historic moment.
