Committees Series 16/2019 - Open Committee Meetings Monday 13 to Thursday 16 May




Open Committee Meetings : Monday 13th to Thursday 16th May

The National Assembly portfolio committee meetings listed below, to be held this week at Parliament in Harare, will be open to the public.  [Senate thematic committees will not be holding open meetings.]

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, please use the entrance to Parliament 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 2700181 and 2252940/1.

Reminder: Members of the public, including Zimbabweans in the Diaspora, can at any time send written submissions to Parliamentary committees by email addressed to or by letter posted to the Clerk of Parliament, P.O.
