President Museveni has named Sarah Langa Siu as the new Chief Registrar of Courts of Judicature.

Langa replaces Esta Nambayo, who has been named a High Court judge.

Sarah Langa, who until the new gig was the deputy registrar of the Civil Division of the High Court — becomes the third female to hold this post in the history of the Judiciary.

Before Nambayo, it was Flavia Senoga Anglin.

The position of the Chief Registrar is one of the top five management positions in the Judiciary after the Chief Justice, Deputy Chief Justice, Principal Judge and the Secretary to Judiciary.

Museveni, in the same vein, has also appointed five registrars.

The newly appointed registrars are Harriet Nalukwago Ssali, Samuel Emokor, Amos Kwizera, Susan Kanyange and Godfrey Opifeni Anguandia.

Sarah Langa has been in judiciary for 12 years, and grown through the ranks to become deputy registrar.

In 2014, Langa served as the Anti-Corruption Court assistant registrar and organised the Court’s first open Day, which would be adopted as one of the activities to commemorate the International Anti-Corruption Week.

She also chairs the Justice Law and Order Sector (JLOS) Accountability Sub-Committee under the Human Rights and Accountability Working Group.

Langa holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Public Administration from Uganda Management Institute (UMI) and a Master’s degree in Law.
