Open Committee Meetings Monday 16th to Thursday 19th March

There will be committee meetings open to attendance by the public in Parliament Building, Harare, on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday this week.

Members of the public may attend these 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.  IDs must be produced.

The details given in this bulletin are based on the latest information from Parliament.

Parliament’s telephone numbers are Harare 2700181 and 2252940/1.
