Hon. Raidza

                                                                                                                            [Days elapsed: 18]

 

That this House-

 

DISTURBED by the excessive and prevalent abuse of drugs by youths countrywide;

 

NOTING the situation is exacerbated by the unemployment rate among youths who consequently end up spending most of their time idle and end up resorting to taking all sorts of drugs;

 

CONCERNED that such abuse of drugs has devastating consequences on our future generations and the Nation as a whole;

 

NOW THEREFORE calls upon the government

 

  1. To put in place measures that will curb the abuse of drugs by youths through self-help projects so as to keep our youths fully occupied all the time.
  2. Set up rehabilitation centres and Hospitals to assist our youths who are addicted to drugs to the extent of treating such abuse as a way of life.
  3. Legislate for stiffer penalties for the importation of those substances that give rise to incidents of drug abuse in the country.

 

  1. Hon. Togarepi

Hon. Nguluvhe

                                                                                                                        [Days elapsed: 15]

 

 

That this House-

 

ACKNOWLEDGING that Zimbabwe is a multi-party democracy that accommodates divergent political views from all Parties in the country;

 

COGNISANT that such tolerance of all views by Government is not a sign of weakness but the pillar and cornerstone of goodwill as envisaged by our peace loving people all over the country;

NOTING with disdain the deplorable and potentially explosive political gimmicks by forces of negation who always vilify the Government and have the audacity in their stunts to advocate for the perpetuation and perpetration of very illegal and retrogressive sanctions on their own motherland by foreign Governments;

CONCERNED that each time the country gears for Elections such political malcontents rear their ugly heads and start speaking with forked tongues wherein they advocate for sanctions on one hand and still want to participate in fair and free elections on the other hand without any repercussions for their unpatriotic and destructive utterances and calls for the tightening of sanctions;

NOW, THEREFORE, calls upon this House:

  1. To condemn in the strongest of terms such people who have nothing to contribute to our nation other than to call for these unwarranted sanctions on our country.
  1. The banning of holding of Government Office Positions by those who continue to advocate for sanctions against the county and yet still continue to enjoy benefits from such responsibilities.
  1. The banning of the swearing into office of anyone advocating for sanctions against the country.

 

  1. Hon. Hamauswa

             Hon. Mushoriwa

                                                                                                                       [Days elapsed: 8]

             That this House;

 

             AWARE that Section 77 (a) of the 2013 Constitution of Zimbabwe provides that

              :every citizen has the right to safe, clean and portable water and the State must take

              reasonable legislative and other measures, within the limits of the resources available

              to it, to achieve the progressive realization of this right.

 

             WORRIED that the water crisis in Zimbabwe has contributed to the outbreak of

             water borne diseases and other unhygienic conditions in society;

 

DISTURBED that the continuous erratic water supplies within both rural and urban local authorities remain a recipe for disaster especially in the context of the Covid-19 global pandemic; and

 

NOW, THEREFORE, this House resolves to urgently request for a supplementary budget from Ministry of Finance and Economic Development which will be devoted solely for water and sanitation in the year 2022, in view of the need to maintain hygenic standards especially during the Covid-19 global epidemic.
