               Hon. Nyoni L.

CONCERNED with the massive deterioration of the road network in most local authorities especially in urban areas.

10.        Hon. Dr. Nyashanu

             Hon. Mhona

 

That this House;

 

INSPIRED by government’s commitment towards the achievement of Vision 2030 to transform Zimbabwe into a Prosperous and Empowered Upper Middle Income Society which resonates well with African Union Agenda 2063 and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals;

 

ENCOURAGED by the Transitional Stabilization Programme which sets in motion the building blocks for the realisation of the 2030 country’s vision;

 

CONCERNED that previous government efforts to stimulate economic development and move the country out of the current economic challenges have yielded intermittent short term gains;

 

NOW, THEREFORE, calls upon government to immediately adopt an incentive regime for the productive sector aimed at promoting value addition, innovation, fusion of technologies and adaptation to the prevailing economic environment.

 

11.           Hon. Madzimure

Hon.  C. Moyo

 

NOTING that cholera, dysentery and typhoid are prehistoric diseases associated with overcrowding, unplanned urban settlements and absence of social amenities;

CONCERNED about the recurrence of cholera, typhoid and dysentery in Zimbabwe;

ALSO CONCERNED by the government`s failure in addressing the dilapidated water and sewer infrastructure in urban areas in order to eliminate these diseases.

NOW, THEREFORE, this House,

 

(a)    Calls upon the Government to urgently find a solution to the problem of cholera; and

 

(b)   Urges the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development to allocate adequate resources to deal with the water and sewer infrastructure challenges as an intermediate solution to the problem.

 

12.              Hon. Mavetera

              Hon. J. Paradza

 

            That this House;

 

AWARE that Zimbabwe has generally a young population with the 2012 National Population Census estimating the population under the age of 35 years to be at 77% and the youth aged 15 to 34 years constituting 56% of the economically active population;

 

ALSO AWARE that the majority of the youth are the hardest hit in terms of unemployment as the 2012 National Population Census data showed that the youth aged 15-34 years constitutes 84% of the unemployed population;

 

MINDFUL of section 20 of the Constitution of Zimbabwe which compels all institutions and agencies of government at every level, to take reasonable measures including affirmative action programmes, to ensure that the youth, among other things, are afforded opportunities of employment and other avenues of economic empowerment as well as representation in political, social, economic and other spheres of life;

 

 

APPRECIATING Government efforts in establishing Vocational Training Centres with a view to ensuring that the youth are equipped with the essential skills and also establishment of the Empower Bank which provides starter-up funds for youth projects;

 

                                                                          

 NOW, THEREFORE, calls upon Government to:

 

Immediately review requirements for accessing funding under the Empower Bank to make them more friendly to the youth;

 

Review the Zimbabwe National Council Act to make it more responsive to the needs of the youth, including the provision for a youth quota in all leadership positions in both the public and private sectors; and

13.               Hon. Mliswa

              Hon. Misihairabwi-Mushonga

 

RECOGNISING that Members of Parliament, with the exception of Independent candidates, are elected to Parliament on a political party ticket

 

ACKNOWLEDGING that every political party is guided by its own ideology, values and principles which largely influence the manner in which members of the party debate on issues brought before Parliament

 

AWARE that once a Member of Parliament is elected, he or she becomes a representative of every citizen of Zimbabwe in his or her constituency and not just those that voted for the Member

 

CONCERNED that Members of Parliament cannot fulfill this representative role to its letter and spirit due to the strictures imposed by political party ideology which is enforced by the whipping system

 

NOTING that Section 61 of the Constitution of Zimbabwe affords every citizen, including Parliamentarians, the right to freedom of expression and the right to seek, receive and communicate ideas and other information

 

ALSO NOTING that Section 148 (1) of the Constitution provides that Members of Parliament have freedom of speech in Parliament and in all Parliamentary Committees and, while they must obey the rules and orders of the House concerned, they are not liable to civil or criminal proceedings, arrest or imprisonment  or damages for anything said in, produced before or submitted to Parliament or any of its committees.

 

COGNISANT, however, that this privilege is invalidated by Section 129 (1) (k) of the Constitution which gives political parties the unfettered power to recall a Member of Parliament whom, in executing his or her representative function, does not toe the party line

 

DEEPLY CONCERNED that this provision entrenches the whipping system and limits Members of Parliament’s ability to debate freely, earnestly and without fear or favour on issues that affect the people of Zimbabwe where the matters appear to contradict the party line

 

 

NOW, THEREFORE, calls upon Parliament to: Urgently amend Section 129 (1) (k) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe so that it stays execution of any notice of expulsion of a member until the Constitutional Court has certified that due process was followed.

 

14.              Hon Mutomba

        Hon Chibaya

 

That this House, takes note of the Report of the 139th   Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), Geneva, Switzerland from the 14th to 18th October, 2018.

 

15.              Hon Matangira

              Hon Mhona

 

            That this House;

 

NOTING that agriculture is the mainstay of Zimbabwe’s economy;

 

FURTHER NOTING that climate change is negatively affecting agricultural production through intermittent rainfall patterns and excessively high temperatures;

 

CONCERNED that the Meteorological Department forecast an El Nino induced drought during the 2017/2018 farming season;

 

ALSO CONCERNED by the death of 3 430 cattle due to tick-borne diseases between November 2017 and May 2018 leading to loss of draught power;

 

NOW, THEREFORE, calls upon Government to:

 

a) Conduct awareness programmes on the forecast drought and encourage farmers to practice conservation farming;

           

b) Provide financial resources to the Department of Veterinary Services for the control of  tick-borne diseases and awareness programmes; and

 

c) Provide tillage tractors under the Command Agriculture Programme to farmers in the most affected regions.

COGNISANT of the Africa Mining Vision which outlines a roadmap to a transparent, equitable and optimal exploitation of mineral resources underpinned by broad-based sustainable growth and socio-economic development in Africa;

 

CONCERNED that the artisanal and small scale mining sector in Zimbabwe, dominated mainly by indigenous people, particularly in the gold sector, continues to be marginalized and suffer a myriad of challenges such as lack of skills, modern equipment and financial support despite deliveries to the formal market having increased over the recent years;

 

ALSO CONCERNED that the colonial mining legal framework which was enacted to promote the large scale mining sector and suppress the informal small scale mining sector through prohibitive licensing fees and requirements has remained in force 38 years after independence;

 

NOW, THEREFORE, calls upon Government to:

Urgently review the Gold Act of 1940, the Mines and Minerals Act of 1961 and the Rural District Council Act in order to legally formalise the small scale mining sector and create an enabling environment for its growth;

 

Establish affordable financing, skills development and technical support services to ensure increased output by the sector; and

 

Provide incentives to the small scale mining sector which encourage deliveries to the formal markets-Hon Matangira.

[Days elapsed: 8]

       Question proposed: That this House

 

CONCERNED about the absence of holistic solutions addressing the issues of vendors, urban poverty and illegal urban settlements in Zimbabwe;

 

ALSO CONCERNED with the total disrespect and abuse of the constitutional rights of vendors and other neglected groups eking out a living in Zimbabwe demonstrated by the heavy handedness and the violence unleashed against vendors in recent weeks by State authorities.

 

 

NOW, THEREFORE,

 

(a)    Condemns the wanton attack and lawlessness unleashed to vendors by

  State Authorities;

 

(b)   Demands the provision of alternative sustainable income generating

infrastructure for vendors; and

 

(c)    Calls upon government to craft and implement a national employment

18.              Adjourned debate on motion on gender equality (Adjourned 1st November, 2018- Hon Biti)

(b)   that women constitutes at least half of the membership of all

Commissions and other elective and appointed governmental bodies established by or under the Constitution or any Act of Parliament; and

 

(c)    the State and all institutions and agencies of government at every level

CONCERNED that notwithstanding the progressive and revolutionary provisions of the Constitution, women continue to be underrepresented in Parliament, Cabinet, Government and other institutions and agencies of government at every level.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, resolves that Government urgently comply with the gender equality provisions in the Constitution of Zimbabwe-Hon Biti.
