Veritas launches Zim draft constitution Android & BlackBerry apps

Posted by

Veritas ConstitutionEarlier this week, we posted that feature phone friendly app platform biNu had made the Zim constitution draft available via mobile. Looks like they ignited the creation of similar apps as Zimbabwe’s referendum to decide the constitution nears.

Veritas, a local organisation that provides information on the work of the Parliament of Zimbabwe and the Laws of Zimbabwe, contacted us yesterday to notify us they had come up with Android and Blackberry apps of the draft constitution.

The app was developed by a Nigerian company called Pledge 51 (site seems down) with the support of a UK donor organisation called Indigo Trust which, according to their sites about page,  funds technology-driven projects to bring about social change, largely in African countries. Pledge 51 developed a similar application in Nigeria with Indigo’s support.

According to the information we got from a Veritas representative, Kuda Hove, Java and Nokia platform versions of the constitution app will be launched in a matter of days. Until then, the app will likely have a very limited audience as smartphone penetration in the country is still quite low.

To get the app, simply search for it in the Google Play Store or BlackBerry App World. You can also download it from Veritas’s website.

    I hate to say this but where is the indegnisation if these things are being done by a Nigerian company.. We have loads of start ups ion Zim who cld have done this job better – as evidenced by the barcamp – …. Its the same pple who say local empowerment who give these Zimbabwean jobs to Nigerians.
