"I have set down (my) administration with institutions of higher learning, our universities to say we must now focus on producing products from universities and institutions of higher learning to say we must now produce products that fit in the industrialisation concept of this country", said President Mnangagwa. Images broadcast on Zimbabwean TV showed scenes of chaos and medics fighting to save those wounded by the blast at the White City stadium in the country's second city Bulawayo. Chiwenga was lightly bruised in the blast.

George Charamba tells the state-run Sunday Mail newspaper that the historic July 30 election will go ahead as planned despite the blast that occurred shortly after President Emmerson Mnangagwa addressed a stadium crowd in Bulawayo.

In a statement, police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba said while the number of the injured was 49, there could be more who were yet to report for medical attention.

Mnangagwa told state broadcaster ZBC, without elaborating, that those responsible must have come from "outside Bulawayo".

Mnangagwa later pointed out he'd had numerous attempts on his life in the past, saying he was used to them by now. "It does not deter anyone", he said, adding that no political rallies would be cancelled and urging fellow politicians to "continue to campaign peacefully".

State media also reported that the ZANU-PF party secretary in charge of political organisation, Engelbert Rugeje, was injured, as were several security personnel.

Trump urges Republican lawmakers to drop immigration bill until election
Trump has falsely blamed Democrats for the policy of separating migrant parents from their children in federal custody. For the past week, Trump has demanded changes in U.S. immigration laws and encouraged Congress to act with urgency.

The vote is being held after Robert Mugabe was forced to resign as president following a de facto coup in November.

This time around, Mnangagwa has pledged to hold free and fair elections as he seeks to mend worldwide relations and have sanctions against Zimbabwe dropped.

Chipo Dendere, a Zimbabwean professor of political science at Amherst College in the U.S., said the incident would change the tone of the election campaign.

Previous elections in Zimbabwe had been marred by electoral fraud, intimidation and violence, including the killing of scores of opposition supporters in 2008.

The US Embassy in Harare condemned the attack.
