George Charamba said : “Yes, the Constitution does give us certain basic liberties; certain rights which we must enjoy and enjoy to the fullest . . . That is a democratic principle, but here is the news for you guys: there is a difference between expressing disgruntlement and taking the law into your hands,” “British people are not happy with the (Theresa) May’s government over Brexit, but I have not read anywhere whey they have tried to stop the traffic of commerce. Americans are not happy with the (Donald) Trump administration. It’s on shutdown (right now), but Lady Liberty has not been pelted with stones. Zimbabweans must not equate demonstrations to violence or equate demonstrations with challenging the authority of the State. We are drifting in an uncharted territory where the fittest survive,” External link

Now we realise that beneath the clutter of Western propaganda, there is in fact a real technological breakthrough in the former Soviet Union states. The level of technological breakthrough by Russia in respect of mining is breathtaking," "I will give you the value chain of those diamonds in Chiadzwa. Do you know that the Chiadzwa diamonds alone are worth about US$24 billion, straight from the ground, and if we polish them, we get about US$46 billion?

George Charamba said : "There is a fundamental question to ask here: Why so indulgently condone violence that we saw gratuitously visit on this society? Why do that?" "When that happens, the authority of the state is in question. And I can assure you, if the authority of the state is in question, the state has an obligation to demonstrate that it exists to ensure law and order. And that is what happened" External link

George Charamba said : "Very soon, we are going to announce new diamond findings basically in every province with Masvingo in the lead," "We chose Alrosa because it is now the biggest diamond company in the world. De Beers has now moved into second position. In fact, I am told they are now into diamond marketing while Alrosa goes beyond mining and is also into the whole value chain of diamonds, from mining to beneficiation. So that is the natural partner of choice," External link

George Charamba said : "So the issue now is that we need equipment to extract them and technology to process them because for as long as they are not processed, they remain a pie in the soil. You should see the monster machines which came from Belarus operating in Chiadzwa to realise that those countries are producing the biggest and most efficient earth-moving equipment in the world. Now we realise that beneath the clutter of Western propaganda, there is in fact a real technological breakthrough in the former Soviet Union states. The level of technological breakthrough by Russia in respect of mining is breathtaking," "I will give you the value chain of those diamonds in Chiadzwa. Do you know that the Chiadzwa diamonds alone are worth about US$24 billion, straight from the ground, and if we polish them, we get about US$46 billion? If you turn them into finished products like rings, we jump to US$96 billion," External link

George Charamba said ( about Emmerson Mnangagwa ) : "President Mnangagwa's concept for dialogue is wider. Soon after elections he asked for dialogue," "What Zanu-PF and this government will not countenance is someone who asks for dialogue while pointing a gun at the head of the government.

George Charamba said : "When it comes to national dialogue, that's a necessary accompaniment of any democratic system. But if it's dialogue that is predicated on violence, on coercion, that will not fly," "The key thing for all parties including those in opposition to know is that there's a way of engaging government without necessarily having to bring in people to do lawlessness and destroy property and cause loss of life in the country. After all, we have a Parliament, there is interaction going on. We have many other avenues, where interaction is going on" External link
