Zimbabweans forced to live side by side with wild animals

In Zimbabwe, hundreds of families living in Mashonaland Central Province say they are being forced off their land to make way for a national game park.

The families say they have been living on the land for more than a decade.

The area, which is some 40 kilometres (25 miles) from the capital Harare, is owned by Zimbabwe's first lady, Grace Mugabe, who has been accused by human rights groups of being insensitive to the welfare of locals.
