Parliament has adjourned for more than a month, but portfolio committees will be sitting.
The National Assembly adjourned last week on Thursday, while Senate adjourned yesterday after its question and answer session. Clerk of Parliament Mr Kennedy Chokuda said the adjournment was in line with Parliament’s sitting calendar. Both the National Assembly and the Senate will resume sitting on May 7.
Committees that will conduct business include the Portfolio Committee on Budget, Finance and Economic Development which will conduct public hearings on the Micro-Finance Amendment Bill and the Portfolio Committee on Primary and Secondary Education’s presentation on the Education Amendment Bill.
