An explosion narrowly missed Zimbabwe's President Emmerson Mnangagwa Saturday at a rally filled with his supporters, in what the state-owned newspaper The Zimbabwe Herald is calling an assassination attempt.
Charamba added: "VP Constantino Chiwenga had slight bruises on his face but he is fine".
An explosion rocked Zimbabwe's White City Stadium in Bulawayo the venue of a presidential campaign rally. Pictures show several people lying on the ground, apparently injured, with others being carried on stretchers or being attended to.
Although Mnangagwa pleaded for unity and peace after he survived the blast, Eldred Masunungure, a political analyst and academic, expressed scepticism about the possibility of a peaceful election next month.
According to the state media, the president was unhurt and had been successfully evacuated in the process.
Mnangagwa confirmed today that an object "exploded a few inches away from me".
Authorities gave no details of what had caused the explosion at Mnangagwa's first rally in Bulawayo, an opposition stronghold where the ruling ZANU-PF has not won in national elections since 2000.

The country's environment minister, deputy speaker of parliament and several security personnel were also among the injured.
"People started running in all directions and then immediately the president's motorcade left at a very high speed", an AFP correspondent at the scene reported.
Mnangagwa was unscathed, but Mohadi suffered a leg injury and Chiwenga's wife Marry was also injured.
The main competition will be between Mnangagwa and the main opposition Movement for Democratic Change's leader, 40-year-old Nelson Chamisa.
The election - dominated by economic issues - is the first to be monitored by worldwide observers since 2002.
