JLOS House Project Overview

Central to the reforms being carried out by JLOS is the need to provide decent accommodation to all the JLOS institutions through one-stop centre offices.  Consequently, JLOS has embarked on the construction of premises at Naguru, Kampala and on Plot 1, the Square to provide accommodation to government ministries, institutions and specifically the Judiciary, to house the Supreme Court, Court of Appeal, Constitutional Court and the Criminal, Anti-Corruption and International Criminal Divisions of the High Court. On completion the entire JLOS House project will provide 102,000 square meters of office space and save Government five million dollars which it spends annually on renting office premises for JLOS institutions.

The JLOS House project (one stop centre) will support and give impetus to ongoing reforms in the public sector aimed at improving the productivity of the public service through integration of services and sharing of common services such as ICT conference facilities and asset management and facilitating the growth of the private sector through the provision of timely public services.  

Furthermore, the JLOS House project will introduce modern concepts of office management and incorporate environmental concepts of green and intelligent technology in the design and construction of public buildings. Ultimately, the savings generated by the one stop centre will free resources to revamp the legal sector while the benefits of delivering competitive public services will enhance Uganda’s competitiveness as it transforms into a modern progressive country.

Components of the JLOS House Complex  

The JLOS House will have four components, namely the JLOS House, the Criminal Court House, the Appellate Courts and the headquarters of the Uganda Police Force. The JLOS House will provide office accommodation through a green and intelligent building for JLOS institutions as a one stop centre to facilitate and improve service delivery and increase access to JLOS services.

IGP hands over Site for the JLOS House Complex

 

KAMPALA - The Justice, Law and Order Sector on September 19, 2013 officially received the land title for the proposed JLOS House Complex from the Inspector General of Police, Gen. Kale Kayihura in a colorful ceremony held at the Uganda Police Headquarters in Naguru, Kampala. In attendance was the top leadership of the sector that included the Hon. Chief Justice (represented by Justice Yorokamu Bamwiine, the Principal Judge), Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Gen. Kahinda Otafiire, the Minister of Internal Affairs, Gen. Aronda Nyakairima, and the State Minister of State for Finance (Planning), Hon. Matia Kasaija. Also present were Justice Paul K Mugamba, the head of the Anti-Corruption Division of the High Court, permanent secretaries of JLOS institutions and members of the JLOS Steering and Technical committees.

 

The JLOS House Complex is a multi-million dollar project whose purpose is to provide decent accommodation to all the JLOS institutions through one-stop center offices. This will enable government to provide public services in a cost effective and responsive manner. For example a person following up a criminal complaint should be able to interact with the Police, the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and the Court within the same complex reducing the cost of access to justice and at the same time leveraging the benefits of technology and modern office concepts.

 

The complex when complete will provide accommodation to government ministries, institutions and specifically the Judiciary, to house the Supreme Court, Court of Appeal, Constitutional Court and the Criminal, Anti-Corruption and International Criminal Divisions of the High Court. Other JLOS institutions to be accommodated in the JLOS House are: Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Ministry of Internal Affairs, Ministry of Gender, Labor and Social Development, Directorate of Citizenship and Immigration Control, Directorate of Public Prosecutions, Uganda Police, Uganda Prisons, Uganda Registration Services Bureau, Uganda Law Reform Commission, Centre for Arbitration and Dispute Resolution, Judicial Service Commission and the Tax Appeals Tribunal. On completion the entire JLOS House project will provide 80,000 square meters of office space and save Government five million dollars which it spends annually on renting office premises for JLOS institutions. JLOS' goal is to reduce the cost of accessing public services through cutting public costs of accessing our services. The sector would like to see Government services being provided as service for the people by the people.

 

Related and interconnected services of the 17 JLOS institutions will be provided in one central location thus reducing on the time, cost, stress and inconvenience of accessing public services. Services such as registration of companies, court services, law enforcement and payment of fees will be provided at the convenience of the public rather than Government.

 

Gen. Kayihura, the IGP in his remarks said that the handover function was a big statement that the Government of the Republic of Uganda was committed to solving the long-standing challenge of office accommodation for ministries, agencies and departments. He noted that the sector wide approach brings a lot of synergy and energy to the police force and appreciated JLOS for supporting police training programs, CID capacity building and the highly effective canine unit in Naggalama.

 

Hon. Matia Kasaija said that the Government through the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development was working hard to get a financier for the JLOS House Project though the build, own, operate and transfer modality. He also expressed optimism that the project would be completed on schedule to achieve its set goals. Hon. Kasaija also pledged to provide resources to fund JLOS programmes to improve the conditions of police officers and facilitate justice reforms across the country.

 

The Minister of Internal Affairs, Gen. Aronda Nyakairima thanked the JLOS leadership for conceiving the idea of the JLOS House which he said would save the tax payer billions of shillings that would in return be invested in capacity building and information and communications technology (ICT). Gen. Nyakairima promised the JLOS Construction Committee, chaired by the Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions Mr. Amos Ngolobe that the Ministry of Internal Affairs would play its part in making the construction of the JLOS House possible.

 

The Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Gen. Kahinda Otafiire in his remarks said that the JLOS house was dear to him because he believes it is one of the cornerstones of a well-functioning government premised on the rule of law and desire to serve the public better. He also added that the sector in the 2012-13 financial year allocated five billion shillings towards this project appropriated for preparing detailed technical designs and supervision of contractors for the entire JLOS house complex.

 

Justice S Kavuma , the acting Chief Justice in a speech delivered for him by the Principal Judge, Justice Yorokamu Bamwiine, said that the handing over of the JLOS land by the Inspector General of Police marked yet another milestone in the life of the Justice Law and Order Sector. Quoting a Chinese proverb, the Justice Kavuma said that the handover of the site was the first step in a journey of a thousand miles that would ultimately transform the way JLOS institutions operate and transform Naguru into a modern suburb of Kampala. He thanked the Uganda Police for giving land to the sector for the JLOS House project. He pledged JLOS support to the Police to build decent accommodation and office space to boost the productivity of its staff.
