About Sheria Watch

Sheria Watch is our public participation project that seeks to put law-makers and citizens in conversation.

Taking seriously the Constitution’s ideal of the sovereignty of the people and of public participation in law making, we created a project that facilitates regular wananchi to have their voices heard. We do this through a three-part solution: information, issue-framing and feedback gathering. We give accurate, impartial and user-friendly information about Bills currently before the house, frame the salient issues for consideration, and collect feedback. The feedback is then presented to the House for consideration.
Put another way, we lubricate the conversation between lawmakers and citizens.
