Police in Malawi has arrested the country's vice president over corruption allegations, according to a statement from the anti-corruption agency.
Saulos Chilima is accused of receiving $280,00 (£230,000) from a businessman to help secure government contracts.
He is due in court where he will face six charges relating to corruption, the agency said.
Mr Chilima has not yet commented on the allegations, but a local news site has shared his picture arriving in court in the capital Lilongwe.
