Ruling Zanu PF supporters said Wednesday they were not impressed after President Emmerson Mnangagwa failed to turn up for a scheduled rally, having patiently waited for him all day.

According to, the development comes after a rally Mnangagwa addressed in Bulawayo last Saturday was rocked by a still to be explained explosion which injured 49 people including his two deputies.

Two of those injured in the blast have since died.

Meanwhile, drawn from as far as Victoria Falls, Jambezi, Kamativi, Dete, Lupote and other areas in Hwange district, Zanu PF supporters thronged Hwange Colliery Stadium, painting the opposition stronghold in the ruling party's green and white colours.

They started trickling into the venue as early as 0800hrs as trucks and buses including smaller vehicles took turns to ferry supporters to the venue.

Once inside the venue the supporters patiently waited for their leader who is also Zanu PF presidential candidate in the upcoming harmonised elections, as they were entertained by Sandra Ndebele and Alick Macheso.

Mnangagwa was expected to address around 1400hrs, after officiating at a ground-breaking ceremony at Hwange Power Station.

And there was ululation and whistling when a helicopter flew past the stadium as the crowd thought Mnangagwa had finally turned up.

But he never did.
