Suspicion over death of Tsvangirai's wife

It is almost two months since Zimbabwe's opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, shook hands with Robert Mugabe to put the seal on the country's new coalition government.

Roy Bennett, an MP chosen to be a minister in the new government, met Newsnight's Sue Lloyd-Roberts and told her that many Zimbabweans believe that the car crash in which Tsvangirai's wife was killed may have been an attempt on the opposition leader's life.

Watch Sue Lloyd Roberts' film from Zimbabwe in full on Newsnight on Thursday, 16 April, 2009 at 10.30pm on BBC Two.
