Malawi's Vice-President Saulos Chilima has been arrested on allegations that he accepted money in exchange for awarding government contracts, the country's anti-corruption agency says.

He is accused of receiving $280,000 (230,000) from a British businessman and other items, a statement says.

Mr Chilima, who has not commented on the allegations, is due in court.
