HON. LADY JUDGE JANE FRANCES ABODO ASSUMES OFFICE AS DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC PROSECUTIONS

Hon. Lady Judge Jane Frances Abodo has assumed her position as Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) today April 22, 2020. This follows her recent appointment by His Excellency the President Y.K. Museveni as the DPP after the Hon. Justice Mike Chibita was elevated to Justice of the Supreme Court of Uganda.

The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) has been eagerly awaiting its head since the Hon. Justice Mike Chibita (JSC) left almost three months ago. We are therefore pleased with the appointment, more so since she is the first female DPP and one of our own, having served in the ODPP for over 20 years.

The Hon. Lady Judge Jane Frances Abodo joined the ODPP as a pupil State Attorney and rose to the rank of Senior Assistant DPP. She headed the Anti-Corruption Department for 8 years and successfully handled very high profile corruption related cases including the pension case of 88 billion Uganda Shillings, against Jimmy Lwamafa and others. In 2015, she was recognized by the Uganda Law Society as the best female prosecutor of the year. She left an exceptional record when she crossed over to the Judiciary in March 2018.

It is with great pleasure that we extend our heartiest congratulations to the Hon. Lady Judge Jane Frances Abodo on her new appointment. We gladly receive her, pledge our support and look forward to productive cooperation.

We wish her success in her new assignment and hope that under her leadership, the ODPP will scale greater heights.

We thank His Excellency the President for the appointment.
