"He is at state house in Bulawayo", said Mnangagwa's spokesman George Charamba.

It will be a key test for Mnangagwa, who succeeded long-serving autocrat Mugabe seven months ago, and remains untested at the ballot box.

The president has joked about the attempts on his life while on the campaign trail.

The speech had been broadcast on television, but the broadcast was immediately ended after the blast.

The president was in Bulawayo to campaign ahead of nationwide elections due on 30 July. It added that several people were said to have been injured but that the extent of the injuries had not yet been established.

Mr Mnangagwa took power in November after his former ally Mr Mugabe stepped down under military pressure.

In a tweet, Mnangagwa called on the country to remain unified despite all political differences after "this senseless act of violence".

Zimbabwe's main opposition leader, Nelson Chamisa, said: 'Our prayers go out to the injured and we hope no lives have been lost.

The broadcaster, ZBC, later reported that Vice-President Kembo Mohadi was injured in the leg and taken to a local hospital.

Zimbabwe's First Vice-President, Constantino Chiwenga, and his wife, suffered minor injuries, Reuters news agency reports.

Mnangagwa reportedly survived an attempt on his life past year when he ate poisoned food at a rally at Phelandaba Stadium in Gwanda, a small town about 550km southwest of the capital.

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

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