Video: Zimbabwe still in turmoil

Villagers accuse president's supporters of intimidation year after unity deal.




    One year has passed since Zimbabwe's rival political parties signed a power-sharing agreement, ending months of political tension.

    But the country is still facing widespread corruption and reports of violence and intimidation are in plenty.

    The residents of one farming village, in particular, have accused supporters of Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe's president, of seizing farm land and intimidating farmers and their workers, and say they often fear for their lives.

    But as Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa reports from Chegutu, officials of the ruling Zanu-PF party say the seizures are simply part of government land reforms.
