Parliamentarians Meet in Bulawayo to Review Strategic Plan

Parliament’s Liaison and Coordination Committee is meeting in Bulawayo for three days to review the strategic plan of parliament and update its work.

The meeting started Tuesday and is expected to end Thursday.

The committee is made up of the three chief whips from the parties in parliament and portfolio and thematic committee chairpersons from the House of Assembly and Senate.

Also attending are Speaker of Parliament Lovemore Moyo and Senate leader Edna Madzongwe, senior managers of parliament, United Nations Development Program representatives, presiding officers and an expert from Kenya invited to help.

Moyo told VOA Studio 7 they will take this opportunity to review the 7th parliament’s achievements and failures since its inception in 2008.

The term of parliament is expected to expire on June 29, with elections expected between June 29 and October.

Moyo said parliament suffered from a lack of funds that saw it failing to complete some of its projects.
