  • Explosion At Zimbabwe Stadium Where President Mnangagwa Addressed Rally

Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa addresses a ruling ZANU-PF party rally in Bulawayo on June 23, 2018, as he campaigns for votes ahead of nationwide elections due on July 30.

Worldwide observers are in the country for the first time since 2002 and, if they endorse the conduct of the ballot, it could help Zimbabwe secure funding from global institutions for the first time in two decades.

"That act of terrorism that happened in Bulawayo is nothing", he added.

"The safety and security of our players and support staff is paramount and, as always, we will take advice from the relevant Australian authorities", a Cricket Australia spokesperson said. A security officer had to have a leg amputated, presidential spokesman George Charamba said. The protection at Chiwenga's rally appears no heavier than normal, with no security checks for those attending.

Days after buying Time Warner, AT&T launches new TV service
That $15 monthly credit can be applied to DirecTV Now if you want, or you can choose to apply it to DirecTV or AT&T's U-Verse. It will be bundled into AT&T's new "Unlimited & More" and "Premium" mobile phone plans that will launch next week.

Without mentioning names, Mnangagwa said there were some people who did not accept his presidency and said his "usual enemies" were behind the blast.

Mnangagwa said the explosion occurred just "inches" from him.

Plain-clothes police conducted random stop-and-search operations on the streets of Bulawayo while armed police mounted check points along the main highway leading out of the city. For a person who has survived several alleged attempts on his life over the past few years and who is presumed to be the target of the Saturday attack, Mnangagwa could have easily thrown caution to the wind and declared war against his rivals, causing unnecessary bloodbath. He has openly joked about them at rallies. No arrests have been reported and officials have not laid blame. The broadcaster also showed footage of a jovial Mnangagwa walking around the state house gardens in Bulawayo.

Mnangagwa added, "However, my fellow Zimbabweans I assure you they will not succeed, we will not turn back; the forces of progress can not be stopped". The country's main opposition leader, Nelson Chamisa of the Movement for Democratic Change, also condemned the attack, saying that any political violence was "totally unacceptable", according to media reports.
