[4th May 2017]

Public Hearings on Youth Funds

Monday 8th to Sunday 14th May

The Portfolio Committee on Youth Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment will conduct public hearings across the country on Youth Funds.  The hearings will begin on Monday 8th May and run until Sunday 14th May.  The meeting schedule is as shown in the table set out below.

Contributions made at the hearings will be considered by the Portfolio Committee and will be part of the Committee’s report to be tabled in Parliament.

The hearings provide an opportunity for members of the public – whether youths or not – to ensure that MPs know all points of view about how the various public and private sector schemes to fund youth empowerment have operated in practice and the reasons for their failures and/or successes.

[Note: Those who are not able to attend the public hearings – and this includes all Zimbabweans in the Diaspora – are encouraged to send in their written submissions, as explained below.]
