MPs Yet To Approve New Code of Ethics

Members of Parliament are yet to approve the new code of ethics for parliamentarians which was tabled by Kuwadzana East MP Nelson Chamisa (MDC-T) last week. The code has strict provisions some of which read:

Interests to be disclosed include the undertaking of all travel abroad (including a brief description of the journey and sponsor) other than personal visits paid for entirely by the MP himself or herself, business visits unrelated to the member’s role as a public representative, or formal visits paid for by the member’s political party, provided that a registrable visit may be entered in the confidential part of the register.

MPs must declare the receipt, description value and source of any gift with a value in excess of $4 500, or gifts from a single source which cumulatively exceed the value of $4 500, including such gifts and hospitality from an external source to a spouse, permanent companion or dependent child of an MP, provided that personal gifts within the family and hospitality of a specific traditional or cultural nature need not be disclosed
