Committee Meetings Open to the Public: 27th to 30th January

The meetings of Senate thematic committees and National Assembly portfolio committee listed below will be open to the public during the coming week.  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 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 a meeting 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.
