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.

    Thank you for this useful information.
    Please can it become a weekly feature so that citizens can start to observe how our governance takes place.
    Without citizen oversight, Zanu PF governments have shown that they are unwilling and incompetent to serve the interests of the people.

    Committee talk, at our expense. They have had since 1980 to talk – look at the results. Sell the chairs they sit on, the cars they drive. Send them back to sit under a tree (if there is one left)and masticate there. We do not have time to waste with their empty talk.
