President Yoweri Museveni will have to find a new Inspector General of Government (IGG) to replace troubled Irene Mulyagonja who is preferring life elsewhere as a judge of the Constitutional Court.
A leaked shortlist of people who have applied for the job of Court of Appeal (Constitutional Court) bares the name of Mulyagonja, the current IGG. She however faces competition from 24 other distinguished learned judges.
The Inspector General of Government (IGG), Justice Irene Mulyagonja, is among 25 candidates who have applied for the three vacant positions for justices of the Court of Appeal/Constitutional Court.
Last month, the Judicial Service Commission (JSC), a government body charged with recruitment and disciplinary of judicial officers, advertised five positions for High Court judges and three for Court of Appeal.
Dr Rose Nassali Lukwago, the JSC secretary, said the recruitment is aimed at replacing judges who have either retired, died or moved to other careers.
The Court of Appeal position attracts a monthly salary of about Shs10m which is untaxed, medical cover, housing allowance, security at the judge’s residence, bodyguard and other allowances.
The other applicants are High Court judges Rugadya Atwooki, Henry Peter Adonyo, Henrietta Wolayo, Damalie Lwanga Nantudde, Henry Isabirye Kaweesa, Lawrence Gidudu, Elizabeth Jane Alividza, Margaret Tibulya, Winfred Nabisinde Nyondo, Jane Frances Kiggundu Byakutaga and Monica Mugenyi Kalyegira (the principal judge of the East African Court of Justice), David Batema, and Ms Agnes Nkonge Nabossa, a registrar.
Other candidates outside the Judiciary are former acting IGG Raphael Baku Obudra, retired High Court judge Billy Kainamura, Mr Denis Bireije Babyebuza, Mr Christopher Gashirabake (deputy solicitor general), Mr Karoli Ssemogerere (an advocate), Mr Kibeedi Muzamiru, Mr James Byabakama, Ms Josephine Ali Apili Ekwanga, Agasha Mugasha and Mr Kenneth Paul Omoding.
