Ogoola is retired Principal Judge at High Court Kampala, having served as senior judge for decades.

He is well known for not mincing his words.

He caused a stir in 2006 when he publicly ridiculed government following an incident in which security forces, commonly known as Black Mambas, sealed off High Court to re-arrest Col. Kizza Besigye who had earlier been granted bail.

Ogoola inherits a decaying institution now suffering from severe case backlog. He starts work as soon as he gets a green light.

Two judges have been re-appointed on the commission. They include Justice Esther Kisakye Mayambala (deputy ) and Justice Bart Katureebe. Others are Prof Fredrick Ssempeebwa, Charles Okoth Owol, Laban Kirya, Henry Kyemba, and Grace Oburu.
