Committee Meetings Open to the Public 22nd to 24th July

The Parliamentary committee meetings listed below will be open to the public on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 22nd, 23rd and 24th  July. 

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

The above details are based on revised information from Parliament issued today.  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.
