Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa has survived an apparent bomb attack in the city of Bulawayo. Live Zimbabwean tv showed an explosion going off shortly after Mr Mnangagwa was leaving the stage having addressed supporters.
While the president was unhurt, state TV reports that Vice-President Kembo Mohadi has suffered a leg injury.Two aides are said to have died on the spot.

President Mnangagwa came into power last November, ousting his former mentor Robert Mugabe.
The president was in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe’s second city, to campaign for his Zanu-PF party ahead of nationwide elections taking place on 30 July.
The elections are the first in Zimbabwe since Mr Mugabe was ousted after 37 years in power.
Zimbabwe’s First Vice-President, Constantino Chiwenga, and his wife, suffered minor injuries, Reuters news agency reports.
Meanwhile, Zimbabwean President has posted the following tweets
This afternoon, as we were leaving a wonderful rally in Bulawayo, there was an explosion on the stage. Several people were affected by the blast, and I have already been to visit them in the hospital.

While we await further information, my thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this senseless act of violence. The campaign has been conducted in a free and peaceful environment, and we will not allow this cowardly act to get in our way as we move towards elections.
Let us continue to be united and address our differences peacefully. The strongest response to violence is peace. The strongest response to hate is love. God Bless Zimbabwe
