Zimbabwe Elections

Voting for a new parliament began today in Zimbabwe. Opposition groups accuse President Robert Mugabe's ruling party of corruption and economic mismanagement. They say the Zimbabwe African National Union Patriotic Front is responsible for months of political violence and intimidation. Hundreds of international election observers are on hand to make sure the vote is not marred by corruption. NPR's Kenneth Walker reports from Harare.
