Kituo Cha Sheria on Friday, 4th May, 2018 held a successful FREE legal aid clinic at Kituo Head Office. The clinic attracted clients from all over Kenya who thronged Kituo’s head office as early as 6.30 am. A total of 129 clients with diverse legal problems were given legal assistance free of charge. The event is normally dedicated to giving a chance to the large number of clients that Kituo may not be able to accommodate in its daily busy schedule where only a limited number of clients are seen.
The event was carried out by Kituo Cha Sheria lawyers, volunteer advocates and Law students from Nairobi University’s Students Association for Legal Aid and Research (SALAR). The lawyers interview the clients and offer appropriate advice. If need be a follow up process is initiated through appointments.
Members of the public with labour, land, housing and human rights’ legal issues among others were assisted. The forum also offered an opportunity to create awareness on labour laws and workers’ rights for those in attendance.
This is an annual activity for Kituo Cha Sheria carried out to correspond with May Day (Labour Day) celebrations and is also in line with Kituo’s overall objectives of assisting the poor and marginalized to access justice. Labour rights is a core mandate area for Kituo.
We continue to provide legal empowerment to the poor and marginalized to realize our vision of a society of Justice and equity for all.
