Committee Meetings Open to Public

Tuesday 1st and Thursday 3rd December

for Post-Budget Consultative Meetings

There will be committee meetings “open to the public” this week, as listed below.  If interested in attending either physically or virtually, please read the following notice from Parliament about current restrictions on physical attendance:

“Please note that in light of the COVID 19 pandemic, access to Committee meetings that are open to the public is still limited in order for us to comply with World Health Organisation Guidelines on COVID 19 as advised by the Ministry of Health and Child Care. Our Public Relations Department will assist you in participating in our open meetings.

We are sorry for any inconveniences caused by the current restrictions due to COVID 19.”

NB:  Parliament’s telephone numbers are Harare (024) 2700181 and (024) 2252940/1.

Purpose of the Meetings

The purpose of the meetings listed below is to enable every portfolio committee to consult with the Ministry or Ministries which it supervises and the Ministry’s parastatals and stakeholders, if any.   Each committee will subsequently hold a second, but closed, meeting at which it will consider and adopt a draft report on its post-Budget analysis for the Ministry or Ministries concerned [these meetings will be on either Friday 4th or Monday 7th December].  All the committee reports will be presented by committee chairpersons during the Budget Debate that will start in the National Assembly on Tuesday 8th December.

Written Submissions to Committees by Members of the Public

It is still possible for members of the public to submit views on the Budget for consideration by portfolio committees – but it should be done quickly because time is running out, via email address clerk@parlzim.gov.zw

 Meetings Programme

Note that in the interests of space we have referred only to the Ministries concerned; please assume that this reference includes the parastatals and stakeholders of the Ministry as well.
