Zimbabwe’s opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) party said on Sunday that its leader Nelson Chamisa escaped an assassination attempt after his convoy came under a bomb attack in the town of Chinhoyi, about 115km (71 miles) west of the capital, Harare.

In a statement poster on Twitter, the CCC said Mr Chamisa’s convoy was attacked with explosives as it approached the venue of a rally.

It said the venue was also petrol-bombed on Saturday by unknown people.

The party blamed ruling Zanu-PF “thugs” for the attacks.

There has been no immediate reaction from the government.

The incidents came weeks after Mr Chamisa’s convoy was attacked by alleged Zanu-PF supporters.
