The National Association of Women Judges (NAWJU) would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Lady Justice Julia Sebutinde upon her re-appointment for a second term at the United Nations International Court of Justice (ICJ). She is the first ever African woman to sit on the World court since she joined in 2012. As a female Ugandan Judge, Justice Julia Sebutinde has demonstrated the capability women have to hold key positions of responsibility and influence and a testimony to her undisputed competences in adjudication.
NAWJU is an NGO composed of female judicial officers with a mission to improve justice for the vulnerable and attain gender equity. Justice Julia Sebutinde’ s win at the ICJ is an encouragement to the NAWJU mission and vision.
We look forward to celebrating more achievements of female judicial officers in Uganda.
Lady Justice Henrietta Wolayo
