Mathare residents are set to receive free legal clinics every week starting from this Friday 20th November 2020 courtesy of Sheria Mtaani Organization.
The legal clinics will always be held at Kiboro House next to Kiboro Grounds in Mathare’s Mabatini ward.
According to lawyer Shadrack Wambui who is also Chairman of Sheria Mtaani, the legal clinics will asses every issue brought to them by a team of lawyers then decide on which legal route to proceed with.
“Those Friday clinics will only help members of the community on legal matters, address challenges and where possible then they will be taken to corridors of justice. There are also those matters we shall just deal with instantly so we encourage Mathare residents to reach out to us,” he said.
About 30 lawyers have been lined up to conduct the exercise every Friday with an aim of ensuring that Mathare residents get justice.
The legal clinics will also help them ensure that the residents are conversant with the constitution and their legal rights.
“Our main aim is to ensure that people in slums get access to justice without difficulties ..we are not here to fight the police,” he added.
