Hon. Lady Judge Jane Frances Abodo has assumed office as Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) today April 22, 2020.

This follows her recent appointment by His Excellency the President Y. K. Museveni as the DPP following the elevation of Justice Mike Chibita to Justice of the Supreme Court of Uganda.

“We gladly receive her, pledge our support and look forward to productive cooperation. We wish her success in her new assignment and hope that under her leadership, the office of the DPP will scale greater heights” Jacquelyn Okui, Ag. Principal State Attorney said.

The Hon. Lady Judge Jane Frances Abodo joined the ODPP as a pupil State Attorney and rose to the rank of Senior Assistant DPP.
