The judiciary has launched construction works for a Justice Centre in Mitooma district  with a call on Ugandans to fight for fair justice.

The Centre which comprises of offices for the Resident State Attorney, police station and court premises for the Chief Magistrate and Grade One Magistrate will cost one billion shillings and is to be funded under the Justice, Low and Order Sector (JLOS).

Construction commenced in February and the works are being executed by Dolphins Consulting Engineers and Contractors Limited.

According to Rose Maturu the Administrative Director at Dolphins Consulting Engineers and Contractors Limited, works are expected to be complete before the end of 2017.

Speaking after laying the foundation stone at the premises in Mitooma town council on Monday, Chief Justice Bart Katureebe revealed that the success of the judiciary largely depends on cooperation from the locals adding that new structures will bring human resource, but not necessarily effective service delivery.
