A Zimbabwean MP from the ruling Zanu PF party has been arrested over fraud and money laundering claims involving $5m (£4.1m), state-run newspaper Herald reports.

Justice Mayor Wadyajena was arrested on Tuesday alongside four others who include suspended officials of the Cotton Company of Zimbabwe (Cottco).

They were arrested by officers from the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission. No details were offered.

The five are expected to appear in court on Wednesday, the newspaper reports.

The state-controlled cotton buying and processing enterprise has recently been rocked by claims of theft of farm inputs and diversion of funds.
