Parliamentary Committee Meetings: Week Ending 12th September

No Meetings on Monday 8th September

All Committee business on Monday has been suspended to allow all members of Parliament to attend a Briefing-Meeting on Members of Parliament Capacity Building.  The purpose of the meeting is to provide members of Parliament with an opportunity to be exposed to the proposed current capacity building programmes to be availed by tertiary institutions in order to enhance their “professional and academic development, vis-a vis their oversight, representative and law making roles”.

Reminder on Emailing Parliament

Members of the public, including Zimbabweans in the Diaspora, can send written submissions to committees by email addressed to clerk@parlzim.gov.zw

Meetings Open  to the Public 9th to 11th September

Members of the public may attend these open meetings, but as observers only, not as participants, i.e. they may listen but not speak.  The meetings are at Parliament in Harare.  If attending, please use the entrance on Kwame Nkrumah Ave between 2nd and 3rd Streets.  Please note that IDs must be produced.

Please note  While the following details are based on the latest information received from Parliament, there are sometimes unavoidable last-minute changes to the meetings schedule.  Persons wishing to attend open meetings are therefore advised to avoid disappointment by checking with the relevant committee clerk [see names below] that the meeting is still on and/or still open to the public.
