NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 8 – The outgoing Secretary General of the East African Community Richard Sezibera has unveiled a mobile application whose main aim is to disseminate news, information and reports on a timely basis about the current state of affairs and development in the EAC.

Dubbed ‘EAC in the palm’, the app was unveiled during the fourth EAC Secretary General’s Forum in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

The first ever EAC mobile app, which is accessible globally, was developed by Otim Brian Joseph, Jacob Eyeru, Leku Dennis and Esemu Herbert from the EAC Youth Ambassadors Platform-Uganda Chapter.

The app will be used to share and disseminate EAC related information with ease as well as tracking reports on development programs in the region.

It is available on Google Play store.

“This will increase information outreach and sensitization on the EAC integration process in real time,” Sezibera said.

One of the developers and the Head of the EAC Mobile Application Project at the EAC Youth Platform Otim Brian Joseph said that the app would be useful in rebranding EAC on the social global network where information on EAC activities as updated on the website is made available to the public on a real time basis through the application.

He added that the app would enhance people-centred integration motive through the interactive chat module embedded in the application while also increasing the involvement of citizens to informative capacity building discussions regardless of nationality, age, ethnicity, tribe and religion.
