Recently state prosecutors under their umbrella body Uganda Association of Prosecutors (UAP) resolved to conduct an industrial action in form of strike over unsolved grievances which included low pay.
The prosecutors gave their employer a 14 day ultimatum to look into their matters; if it fails they proceed with their indefinite strike.
Apparently, lawyers and magistrates are planning to join the striking struggle over too many taxes.
According to our sources, lawyers submitted proposals to the Law Society for ammendment of the Advocates Renumeration and taxation of costs rules over a year ago but the council did nothing about it.
“I propose that an extra ordinary meeting of the society be convened so advocates can also go on strike until law council acts,” one of the lawyers suggested.
