BALAWAYO - A rally attended by the Zimbabwe’s president, Emmerson Mnangagwa in Bulawayo, was rocked by an explosion as the president walked off the podium.
 
However, the President's spokesman said the head of state was successfully evacuated.
 
“The president has been successfully evacuated. He is at the provincial headquarters in Bulawayo,” spokesman George Charamba told AFP by telephone.
 
“We think it was an explosion, which certainly happened very close to the podium where the personalities were,” Charamba continued, without further clarification.
 
A ZANU PF official tweeted a video clip that he says captured the explosion.
