Chief Justice Terrence Rannowane said the division would enhance easy access to justice and reduce the distance travelled and costs incurred by litigants and the public around the region. 

“The 500km that was travelled to the second city was too costly. The time and cost saved will be directed at case disposal and backlog reduction as well as bringing justice closer to our people,” he said. 

Speaking during the Opening of the Legal Year, Rannowane mentioned that subject to the provision of the necessary resources, the plan to commence operations of a fully-fledged High Court Division would be during the second half of this year.

that the creation of two additional regional magistrates posts for the Okavango, Ngamiland, North West and Kgalagadi regions and a chief magistrate for Gaborone Extension II are already receiving consideration. 

“The fulcrum for harnessing, hatching and midwifing of all the above is adequate resourcing of which we shall be engaging government closely on availing the necessary resources to enable us to deliver on our mandate,” he said. 

On the fundamental issues within the administration of justice, he explained that it included among other things complaints on conditions of service, remuneration, fairness and transparency in promotions, progressions, training, transfers and the provision of adequate resources.
