An object detected by a US Navy plane near the area where a missing Argentinian submarine sent its last signal is "not the lost sub", officials said.

In a 30-minute speech to tens of thousands of supporters in Harare's national stadium, Mnangagwa extended an olive branch to opponents, apparently aiming to bridge the ethnic and political divides exploited by his predecessor during his 37 years in charge.
