Judge Justice Yasin Nyanzi of Civil division has been transferred to the Criminal division of the High Court.
Justice Nyanzi is famous for issuing an order stopping the 2013 impeachment of Kampala Lord Mayor Elias Lukwago [alas too late].
He is also remembered for ordering government to pay Lukwago Shs75m for malicious arrest and degrading treatment in 2009 while being arrested with Aruu county MP Hon Odongo Otto at Central Police Station in Kamapala.
In a circular issued by the Principle Judge Justice Yorakamu Bamwine, Nyanzi will help reduce on the case backlog in the criminal division of the High Court.
He is expected to commence work in his new office by 15th July 2016.
