Must read

FIDA Executive Director Irene Odida Ovonji

The launch presided over by FIDA Chief Executive Irene Odida Ovonji took place today at Esella Hotel in Kira Town council, Wakiso district, where the women lawyers had camped for a three day training programme for Community Legal Volunteers {CLVs}. The CLVs were selected from the districts of Kampala, Kapchorwa, Lwengo, Kabale and Arua.

Harriet Nabankema, a Senior Legal Advocate at FIDA Uganda said the App will provide instant and free legal aid to all people. She further noted that the profiling of different legal aid service providers across the country will help courts by settling some disputes out of court in the process reducing on the case backlog.

Raymond Mudduawulira, a programmer who developed the app with colleagues said some of the features on the FIDA Legal Aid App, expected to come into use in a week’s time, include a call button which leads users to a toll free line; a case section which allows one to write and post any issue of concern to FIDA, display of all workers of FIDA and their profile, a list of FIDA offices which will display all the officers and ability to contact UBER service.
