Committee Meetings Open to the Public: 2nd to 6th March

Meetings Open to the Public This Week

There are several open meetings scheduled for this week, on Monday morning and afternoon, Wednesday morning and Thursday morning, as indicated below.

These details are based on the latest information from Parliament.  But, as there are sometimes last-minute changes to the meetings schedule, persons wishing to attend should avoid disappointment by checking with the relevant committee clerk [see below] that the meeting is still on and open to the public.  Parliament’s telephone numbers are Harare 700181 and 252940/1.

Members of the public may attend these open meetings, but as observers only, not as participants, i.e. they may observe and 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.
