[16th July 2016]

Open Parliamentary Committee Meetings: 18th to 21st July

The committee meetings listed below will be open to the public.  This means that members of the public may attend the meetings, but as observers only, not as participants, i.e. they may observe and listen but not speak.  If attending a meeting at Parliament, please use the entrance on Kwame Nkrumah Ave between 2nd and 3rd Streets.  Please note that IDs must be produced.

The details given in this bulletin 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 committee clerk that the meeting concerned is still on and open to the public.  Parliament’s telephone numbers are Harare 700181 and 252940/1.
