    Prudence Mabhena, a Zimbabwean singer-songwriter born with arthrogryposis, is now a star at home, after a documentary based on her life won an Academy Award last month.

    Mabhena has long struggled against discrimination, and she hopes the Oscar success will bring a change in social attitudes.

    Haru Mutasa has the story.
