Malawians should expect more improved service provision on legal matters as the Legal Aid Bureau has finalized setting up a Legal Aid Fund pursuant to section 39 of the Legal Aid Act.

The fund intends to collect money that will necessitate lawyers in the bureau represent underprivileged Malawians in court.

The bureau is however indicating that the fund lacks capitalisation as it has been newly set.

Funds are expected to be collected from government’s allocation in the national budget, international partners and well wishers among others.

Trouble Kalua who is the bureau’s Deputy Director told Capital FM that they are hoping current budget deliberations will include funds allocation to the bureau.

From representation of other court cases, the bureau also gets payments which according to them will be channeled to the newly set fund.

At present, the Legal Aid Bureau is actively providing its services from offices in Blantyre, Lilongwe and Mzuzu.

There are however intentions of broadening up to other districts including Zomba in the eastern region if funds are available through the Legal Aid Fund that has been set up.

Apart from getting its funding through the Aid, if the 2017/18 financial budget is passed by parliamentarians, it is anticipated that the bureau will receive increased allocation.

During presentation of the budget, minister of information Goodall Gondwe admitted that Capital Hill still has an uphill task to improve economic management, citing misuse of public funds in numerous ministries, departments and agencies.

Gondwe stressed on the need for every Malawian to ensure that funds do not get misused so that all allocations fulfill their intended purposes.

The Legal Aid Bureau is a newly established institution under the Legal Aid Act of 2011 mandated to provide legal aid services to indigent and vulnerable people in need of legal services.
