Guvamombe was also facing charges of defeating the course of justice after he allegedly directed a subordinate, Elijah Makomo, to recuse himself in a trial involving his alleged business partner's son.

Guvamombe's charges were withdrawn before plea.

The State led by Constance Ngombengombe said it will summon Guvamombe back when it has put its house in order.
