Kavuma, Kiryabwire to Hear 61 Cases in a Day

Sunday, 11th September 2017

"Kampala — In a bid to resolve appeals arising from the High Court, the Court of Appeal has introduced a quick mediation approach of resolving the same.

According to a statement from the Judiciary issued last Saturday, this pilot alternative dispute mechanism will see 61 cases settled within one day, which is a remarkable step in resolving cases.

"Two justices of the Court - outgoing Deputy Chief Justice Steven Kavuma and Justice Geoffrey Kiryabwire, who heads the Appellate Court Mediation, will on September 11 handle 31 cases and 30 cases, each, respectively," read in part the Judiciary statement.

Adding: "This will be the Court's maiden attempt at Appellate Mediation, a mechanism popularly used by the courts in the developed world to give quick justice to the people."

The statement quotes the Judiciary Deputy Registrar, Mr Vincent Emmy Mugabo, of having explained that the pilot project is in respect to miscellaneous applications which form the highest backlog in the Court of Appeal."
