The African Parliamentary Press Network(APPN) Zimbabwe Caucus has moved a step further in establishing Parliamentary Press Committees aimed at strengthening the operations enshrined in the APPN Regulatory Framework.
The Zimbabwean Caucus Executive successfully championed the creation of the Parliamentary Press Committees and these are functional as of 4 April 2023.
The creation of the committees merely resembles the format of the National Parliament and the Pan African Parliament. These will also be led by Committee Heads drawn from Public and Private media.
