The Judiciary has made new deployments and transfers of Judges in the High Court Divisions and Circuits.
The transfers announced by the Principal Judge, Flavia Zeija on the 5th October 2021, follow the appointment of new judges.
The deployments will take immediate effect whereas the transfers are to take effect by November 8th 2021. The transfers are delayed because the judges are required to complete matters that are before them and are in advanced stages.
“The judges on transfer are required to complete matters in advanced stages at their current stations before relocation to the new stations and may not take on new matters,” the Principal Judges communication reads in part.
