Malawi’s laws go on App
As Malawi is trying to make strides in technological revolution, a Chancellor College (Chanco) student has set to launch his App that gives the public a platform to access laws of the country.
The student, Alfred Kankuzi,who is studying computer science said his mobile app, Legal wallet, incorporates short online services for many laws such as child rights, gender based violence, bail and mitigation, and succession and inheritance.
Speaking in an interview with Malawi24, Kankunzi said the app will bring easiness in accessing legal matters on the land.
“The aim of legal wallet is to make the laws of Malawi readily and easily accessible by people of all social, cultural, and economic backgrounds. The vision is to promote participatory and inclusive governance. And deepen the access to justice,” said Kankuzi.
He added that the app has been made to be friendly to users saying the process of accessing the services does not require much steps.
The legal wallet comes at a time when Malawi is set to leave the case management system that saw judiciary officials using papers in courts to e-case management system that is to be launched on Monday in Blantyre
