HON. SEN. DR. PARIRENYATWA: Thank you very much Mr. President, I think that there has been enough time to respond to this motion and I wish to thank Hon. Senators who contributed immensely towards the benchmarking visit to Rwanda, to the lessons that we learnt from there and to the exchange of information that was then forthcoming.  Indeed, we learnt a few things from our perspective from Zimbabwe and we took note of some recommendations, which we hope that this Hon. Senate will be able to carry through and push so that some of those visits are not just visits but actually bring out recommendations that can be pursued.  I wish to thank Hon. Members who contributed to this debate so immensely and I seek for the adoption of the motion.  I thank you.

HON. SEN. DR. PARIRENYATWA: Thank you Mr. President, Hon. Senators contributed immensely on this motion and also looked at the issue of counter terrorism with regard to victims of terrorism and a lot of issues apply to us and internationally.  It was a high level meeting indeed that took place in Rome where we participated very vigorously.  I am aware that there will be further meetings of this nature in the future but for now, I think Hon. Senators have adequately articulated their views on this motion.  Again, I wish to seek for the adoption of the motion and I thank Hon. Senators who contributed so well.

PROVISION OF FUNDS FOR COMPLETION OF DAM CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS

Seventh Order read: Adjourned debate on motion on the need for Government to provide adequate funds for the completion of dam projects.

Question again proposed.

HON. SEN. MUZENDA: Mr. President, I move that the debate do now adjourn.

HON. SEN. TONGOGARA: I second.

THE HON. DEPUTY PRESIDENT OF SENATE:  This motion has amassed 21 days.  The mover of the motion is not here, which means this motion is not going to be adopted but it falls away.  So Hon. Senators, when you move motions, you must keep track of your motion so that it does not fall away. In this instance, sadly it has fallen away.  Hon. Sen. Muzenda had moved and Hon. Sen. Tongogara had seconded the motion, it is now just a formality, the motion has fallen away.

On the motion of HON. SEN. MUZENDA, seconded by HON. SEN. CHIRONGOMA, the Senate adjourned at Twelve Minutes to Three o’clock p.m.
