73 judicial officials have been reshuffled to improve service delivery.
Among those reshuffled include Registrars, Deputy Registrars, Assistant Registrars, Chief Magistrates and Magistrates grade one.
Jameson Karemani, the Judiciary Public Relations officer says that the change comes after it was discovered that some judicial areas lacked staff, some had more than the required number, but also some officials had shown laxity in doing their work.
According to a document signed by the Chief Registrar Sarah Langa Siu, the 73 officials include one Registrar, five Deputy Registrars, two Assistant Registrars, three Chief Magistrates, and 63 Magistrate Grade Ones.
Susan Kanyange has been moved from the Commercial Division of the High Court to replace her Court of Appeal counterpart, Godfrey Opifeni, who retires from service in January 2021.
Also in the transfers, some Chief Magistrates have been assigned additional responsibilities of care taking High Court registries due to the limited number of Registrars to undertake the responsibilities.
Karemani, says the transfers take effect January 1, 2021.
