An explosion has hit a rally attended by Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa in the city of Bulawayo.

Footage from the blast at White City Stadium appears to show Mr Mnangagwa leaving the stage after addressing supporters when a device went off.

He was not hurt, his spokesman said. Several people have been injured.

President Mnangagwa came into power last November, ousting his former mentor Robert Mugabe who had been running the country for 37 years.
