Several judges have confessed their inability to use the Electronic Case Management System and asked the judiciary to organise for them training sessions to acquire the necessary skills.

This came to the fore during the 22nd Annual Judges Conference held under the theme “Discharging the mandate of the Judiciary: Towards a Modern Professional and Effective Judiciary.”

It all started after Justice Geoffrey Kiryabwire, the head of the Judiciary’s Information and Communication Technological Committee asked the Judges to embrace the Electronic Case Management System so as to eliminate duplication in their work.

Justice Kiryabwire noted that currently some cases are mismanaged during entry in the registry where they are recorded in books badly by clerks before the information is transferred to computers.

He explained that because of the voluminous files, which also occupy a lot of space, sometimes it becomes very difficult to access some records.

He encouraged the judges to embrace the Electronic Case Management System for filing, executing, notifying, and court payments among others.
