Bill Watch Parliamentary Committees Series 31-2014




[23rd June 2014]

Committee Meetings Open to the Public 24th to 27th June

Members of the public may attend the meeting, but as observers only, not as participants, i.e. they may listen but not speak.  The meeting is at Parliament in Harare.  If attending, please use the entrance on Kwame Nkrumah Ave between 2nd and 3rd Streets.  Note that IDs must be produced.

The above details 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 relevant committee clerk [see names below] that the meeting is still on and open to the public.  Parliament’s telephone numbers are Harare 700181 and 252940/1.
