“… promotions always create gaps in the lower structure, which will need to be filled. For instance, although we have 15 new chief magistrates, 12 of the existing ones have been elevated to deputy and assistant registrars,” she said.

The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) announced that it had promoted 32 judicial officers in the magistracy and registrar ranks.

An official statement says JSC promoted nine judicial officers to the rank of deputy registrar, five to assistant registrar, 14 to chief magistrate, one principal magistrate grade one, and one to senior magistrate grade one.

A senior state attorney and an advocate were elevated to deputy registrar and chief magistrate respectively.

Chief Registrar Sarah Langa Siu said the new changes have increased gaps in the lower ranks.

“… promotions always create gaps in the lower structure, which will need to be filled. For instance, although we have 15 new chief magistrates, 12 of the existing ones have been elevated to deputy and assistant registrars,” she said.

“This means that, in fact, the number of Chief Magistrates has only gone up by 3 from 42 to 45. Also, the number of Magistrates Grade One has dropped from 175 to 165 due to promotions. But we shall continue working closely with JSC to ensure that the gaps are filled."

The elevated officers will be deployed soon, according to the statement.
