Minister Norbert Mao speaks on Friday.

The Minister for Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Norbert Mao has hailed  Permanent Secretary, Pius Bigirimana for transforming the  Judiciary .

“I want to thank the Secretary to the Judiciary, my friend Dr Pius Bigirimana for his transformational leadership,” Mao said.

He was on Friday speaking during the opening ceremony of the new law year at  the Judiciary headquarters in Kampala .

According to Mao, the Judiciary under Bigirimana has recorded great strides in terms of development.

Comparing Bigirimana's impact to the potency of Quinine a medication used to treat Malaria, Mao hailed the  Permanent Secretary for overseeing   the efficiency and effectiveness of the Judiciary since his appointment.

He mentioned the  construction of a state-of-the-art twin tower complex that now houses the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal.

“This is a remarkable achievement may be other Permanent Secretaries can learn from you. Of course, Mr Bigirimana needs to go for courses in diplomacy but may be it helps not be to obsessed with being diplomatic,” Mao added.

“I think the workspace hygiene of the Judiciary has improved. There are many workplaces that are toxic, nothing gets done. So we can come and pick some notes.”

The construction of the twin tower building  started in December 5, 2019 but was delayed by the Covid pandemic.

The buildings are now complete and expected to save the Judiciary, at least shs9.9 billion in rent.

Minister Mao emphasized that the comparison to Quinine was not just a figure of speech but a testament to the crucial impact Bigirimana has had on the efficiency and functionality of the judiciary.

“He is quinine without the sugar quoting. But I know that he is result oriented. I thank you together with the team you work with of course under the guidance of Chief Justice, deputy Chief Justice and entire team,” he articulated.
