"Dear colleagues, please note that the recent transfers of Permanent Secretaries by President Museveni have been cancelled. Dorcas Okalany (Secretary to Judiciary) should be returning to office by January 12, 2016 after her annual leave..." reads in part the communication from the office of the Public Relations of the Judiciary to journalists last night.
