In a quest to enhance its representative function, the National Assembly has been implementing activities that are aimed at enhancing the Member – Constituent interactions, such as, Open Days.
In this regard, the Area Member of Parliament for Mandevu, Honourable Jean Kapata, Minister of Lands and Natural Resources officiated at the National Assembly Open Day held at Mandevu Constituency Office on 20th July, 2019. The Open day accorded the constituents an opportunity to interact with their Member of Parliament and discuss issues affecting the constituency.
Further, apart from the Area Member of Parliament and Constituency Office staff sensitising the constituents, drama was used to elaborate the roles of the Member of Parliament and Constituency Office.
The activity was attended by over 500 constituents who included Non Governmental Organisations, Civil Society Organisations and Faith Based Organisation. It is expected that the event will contribute towards the effective use of the Constituency Office.
