Veritas - Explanation of its Proposed Amendments to ZICC Bill

The Bill needs a delayed date of commencement, to give time for members of the Commission to be appointed and for the Commission to appoint staff, get premises and generally get ready to start operations. Once they are ready to start, the Bill (now an Act) can be brought into operation.
Clause 2 (Interpretation)
