Chief Justice Alfonse Chigamoy Owiny-Dollo bid farewell to Elsie Attafuah, Uganda’s outgoing United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) resident representative, during a courtesy call at his chambers in the Judiciary headquarters in Kampala on Thursday, January 11, 2024.

Accompanied by UNDP senior gender advisor Beatrice Mugambe and technical advisor David Maina, Attafuah visited the Chief Justice to express her gratitude and bid farewell as she concludes her tour of duty in Uganda this month, according to a statement from the Judiciary.

During the meeting, Attafuah extended her appreciation to Chief Justice Owiny-Dollo for his role in fostering the relationship between the United Nations agency and the Judiciary. The gathering follows a recent farewell bid by President Yoweri Museveni to Attafuah, who served as the UNDP country representative for four-and-a-half years.

As UNDP’s resident representative, Attafuah led a team responsible for harnessing and directing the organization’s capabilities and partnerships in support of Uganda’s development goals. Prior to this role, she managed UNDP’s climate and forests office in Africa, providing technical guidance to 28 countries.
