    Women in Zimbabwe often lose land to relatives when their husband dies.

    Now, there's a call for greater protection for widows in rural areas.

    Local chiefs want the law changed so they can act as marriage officers and help the women keep their livelihoods.

    Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa reports from Makoni district in Zimbabwe.
