Former Zambia Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo and his wife have been arrested on allegations of corruption.

Mr Kampyongo and wife Wanziya are alleged to own property worth $1.8m (£1.6m) suspected to be proceeds of crime.

They both deny the charge.

Anti-corruption commission spokesperson Timothy Moono confirmed the two were arrested on Thursday and released on bond.

The property is located in the capital, Lusaka.

Mrs Kampyongo is further alleged to have money in her bank accounts exceeding her verified sources of income.

They all denied the charges and were released on police bond.
