In 1999, Parliament adopted the final report of the Parliamentary Reform Committee. One of the recommendations contained in the report was that of establishing a Code of Conduct and Ethics for Members of Parliament.
The Constitution of Zimbabwe 2013, in section 198 provides for the enactment of an Act of Parliament which must provide measures to enforce the provisions of principles of public administration and leadership, including measures to-
(a) require public officers to make regular disciosures of their assets;
(b) establish codes of conduct to be observed by public officers; and
(c) provide for the disciplining of persons who contravene the provisions of Chapter 9 of the Constitution or any code of conduct or standard so established.
