President Museveni has named Sarah Langa Siu as the new Chief Registrar of Courts of Judicature, a judiciary spokesperson confirmed the appointment by phone.
Langa replaces Esta Nambayo and becomes the third female to take up this position in the history of the Judiciary. Before Nambayo, it was Flavia Senoga Anglin.
