Chamisa To Discuss ICT Bill

THE Minister of Media, Information and Communication Technology, Nelson Chamisa, will today give oral evidence on the progress of the proposed Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Bill.


This will be done under the House of Assembly's Portfolio Committee.

The House of Assembly and Senate have, however, adjourned until next month due to COPAC proceedings.

"He is expected to give oral evidence about the progress made on the ICT Bill," an official from the House of Assembly said.

The ICT Bill has caused many headaches for Chamisa and his Zanu PF Cabinet counterpart, Nicholas Goche, Minister of Communication and Transport.

Goche has accused Chamisa of stepping over his "actual portfolio" and grabbing some of his powers as a government minister.

He has also accused Chamisa of trying to take over "everything that deals with communication in Zimbabwe".

Members of the public can attend the meeting but are not allowed to contribute to any debate that follows after presentation.

"They can listed but they cannot speak," the House of Assembly official said.
