South Africans can now access and enjoy free legal advice through Molao365. Molao365, is an online free legal advice service offered via an application. Legal advice is offered absolutely free by qualified and experienced lawyers. The legal advice is offered in most local South African languages.
South Africa has a world-renowned Constitution which offers leading practices for the rights of all who live in the country. The majority of people are not fully benefiting from the Constitution because of:
- The high legal costs in fully understanding and accessing the Constitution and its accompanying rights.
- Low literacy levels on the full benefits of the Constitution and its accompanying rights.
- The legal processes that enable Constitutional benefits are cumbersome and complicated for the majority of the population.
It is against this background that Molao365 exploited (exploits) the opportunities and capabilities of technology to offer free legal advice via a secure online chat service. The legal advisory services are provided by a team of experienced legal experts. The legal team is available twenty-four hours a day, Seven days a week.
The majority of the population needs legal awareness and literacy as opposed to legal representation, added Ms Gugu Gumede. With Molao365, clients only pay for legal work to be conducted and /or legal representation in court or institutions etc. Molao365 is not an insurance that people have to sign up for and pay for which is the case with most legal products currently in the market. There are no monthly subscriptions. The application can be downloaded free of charge on devices using both Android and iOS operating systems.
The current legal business model is exploitative for example even if you want to make enquiries about deceased estates, wills, types of marriages, you will be charged around R5000 “for the opening of the file and consultation”. However, in our experience most people just need legal literacy and not legal representation. People tend to shy away from using any form of legal services. Case in point, about 40% of old Soweto Township sections are unresolved deceased estates, explained Ms Gumede, founding member of Molao365.
Molao365 is available to all South Africans and can be used as and when legal advice is needed. One does not need to subscribe nor become a member. Molao365 is easy to use. Simply – download the application, register and ask your question.
