BILL WATCH

PARLIAMENTARY COMMITTEES SERIES 2/2018

18th January 2018

Public Hearings on Public Entities Corporate Governance Bill

Monday 22nd January to Friday 26th January

Parliament has published the self-explanatory notice set out below announcing ten public hearings countrywide on this important Bill, and giving the dates and venues of the hearings. 

The Bill is available on the Veritas website [link].   It has already been introduced in the National Assembly.  It received a non-adverse report from the Parliamentary Legal Committee during December; this cleared the way for the Bill’s Second Reading Stage, which was launched on 19th December by the Minister of Finance and Economic Planning with a speech outlining the Bill’s provisions [link].  Under Parliamentary procedure, continuation of the Second Reading Stage must now wait for the presentation of the report of the Portfolio Committee on Finance and Economic Development on the Bill.  That report will include the views of the public on the Bill as gathered by the committee during next week’s public hearings and from written submissions made to it.

Reminder: Members of the public, including Zimbabweans in the Diaspora, can at any time send written submissions to Parliamentary committees by email addressed to clerk@parlzim.gov.zw or by letter posted to the Clerk of Parliament, P.O. Box 298, Causeway, Harare or delivered to Parliament’s Kwame Nkrumah Avenue entrance in Harare, marked for the attention of the relevant committee.
