The Deputy Director of Public Prosecution- International
Affairs, James Odumbi Owere has cautioned state attorneys against habits of laziness
and irresponsiveness, which frustrates the effectiveness of the directorate and
the delivery of justice.
Speaking at the opening of a week-long induction of new state
attorneys at Hotel Brovad in Masaka City on Monday, Odumbi expressed concern
that some prosecutors are falling short of expectations of their duties due to peculiar
conducts that manifest in their methods of work.
According to him, some state attorneys are deliberately not applying
their competence while handling case files allocated to them, hence abusing
public trust and slowing down the administration of criminal justice.
Odumbi has challenged the new state attorneys to measure up to
the tasks of their professional deployments, by striving to exhibit exceptional
levels of integrity through providing reasoned legal opinions, rather than making
unnecessary referrals to the office of the DPP.
“there are opinions….

In September this year, the government recruited at least 100
state prosecutors to respond to the longstanding staffing gap in the Office of
the Director of Public Prosecution - ODPP.
Odumbi that while they are looking forward to the new attorneys
to bolster the delivery of justice, they are equally expected to build unique personal
traits that will enable them to withstand the immense temptations and
challenges awaiting them in their line duties.
“it will hurt to see….

Savia Mugwaya, the Commissioner at Civil Service College, one of
the main facilitators at the capacity building engagement called upon the new state
attorneys to diligently accomplish their responsibilities and be mindful of the
legacy they leave in their trail of service.
She challenged them to
keep their offices open to the public and to ensure that their academic exposure
and competence impacts the rights and justice of the citizens.
