Bill Watch Parliamentary Committees Series 10-2013



[20th May 2013]

The Parliamentary committee meetings listed below are the remaining meetings open to the public this week.  Late receipt of information from Parliament prevented us from giving timely notice of the two open meetings that were due to take place at 10 am this morning.

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

This bulletin is 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 [see names below] that the meeting is still on and open to the public.  Parliament’s telephone numbers are Harare 700181 and 252941.

Reminder: Members of the public, including Zimbabweans in the Diaspora, can at any time send written submissions to Parliamentary committees by email addressed to
