BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE

REPORT OF THE DELEGATION TO THE 7TH ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING OF THE AFRICAN PARLIAMENTARIANS NETWORK ON DEVELOPMENT EVALUATION HELD IN MOROCCO
Third Order read: Adjourned debate on motion on the Report of the delegation on the 7th Annual General Meeting of the Africa Parliamentarians’ Network on Development Evaluation.
Question again proposed.
HON. SEN. CHIEF NECHOMBO: Thank you very much Mr. President, I would want to wind up our report. I would want to thank in a very big way the Hon. Members of Senate who debated the motion, those who were able to go through and give an ear to the report on the 7th Annual General Meeting of the Africans Parliamentarians Network on Development Evaluation. In thanking the Hon. Senators, I would want to wind up and emphasize the fact that development evaluation is at the heart of us parliamentarians in doing our oversight role, our representative and legislative roles. This is so because of our oversight role, policy formulation and decision making and the need for us to monitor Government programmes and intervention.
Mr. President, the need for us to demand evidence from evaluation in the matrix of development would continue and would remain imperative if we are to realise the sustainable development goals and also the Vision 2030. To that end Mr. President, I propose that we adopt the report of the 7th Annual General Meeting of APNODE.
Motion that this House takes note of the report of the delegation to the 7th Annual General Meeting of the African Parliamentarians’ Network on Development Evaluation held from 1st to 3rd August, 2022, in Rabat, the Kingdom of Morocco, put and agreed to.
On the motion of THE DEPUTY MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS AND INTERNATIONAL TRADE (HON. DR. MUSABAYANA), the Senate adjourned at Twenty Two Minutes to Three o’clock p.m.
