George Charamba said : "Development of Chiredzi falls within a broader national plan targeting for development of all marginal areas of Zimbabwe, principally Binga, Gwai-Shangani, Beitbridge, Chiredzi itself, Middle Sabi, Nyashanu, Rwenya and Kanyemba," "The key word is development, not displacement as claimed by detractors. At the heart of this national master plan for depressed areas is community empowerment through diversified irrigated agriculture, mining and eco-tourism. Development of communication infrastructure, principally road networks, telecommunication broadcasting services is a key enabler in the matrix, as is also the intensification and upgrading of livestock in these zones which lend themselves eminently to animal husbandry" External link

George Charamba said : “Speaking from where I sit, there is huge sympathy for the bargaining efforts of the civil servants through their unions. Which means at the end of the day, come three months, we are likely to see a civil servant who is earning handsomely, the key thing being we don’t want to cause shocks that we are experiencing now where the money is eroded by inflation,” External link

George Charamba said : “You can’t stand in the way of compassion in the name of unionism. Zimbabwe will be a first in the world to have civil servants who go on strike on account of the employer’s benevolence, the employer has decided to show compassion without the rigmarole of collective bargaining, you can’t get incensed with the employer improving your welfare, in any case they cannot protest on newspaper pages while they accept the same facility on their payslips.

George Charamba said : "Development of Chiredzi falls within a broader national plan targeting for development of all marginal areas of Zimbabwe, principally Binga, Gwai-Shangani, Beitbridge, Chiredzi itself, Middle Sabi, Nyashanu, Rwenya and Kanyemba," "The key word is development, not displacement as claimed by detractors. At the heart of this national master plan for depressed areas is community empowerment through diversified irrigated agriculture, mining and eco-tourism. Development of communication infrastructure, principally road networks, telecommunication broadcasting services is a key enabler in the matrix, as is also the intensification and upgrading of livestock in these zones which lend themselves eminently to animal husbandry" External link
