Government Chief Secretary Lloyd Muhara confirmed in a statement  on Tuesday seen by Nyasa Times that Makungwa,  who served as Minister of Gender, Children and Social Welfare  in the Joyce Banda administration, will be a presidential adviser on women affairs in the Office of President and Cabinet (OPC).

Muhara said the appointment is with effect from February 12 2018.

The position was last held by Anne Makuta.

Makungwa  dumped PP in November 2016 to join DPP.

Previously, she also held  a senior position in the defunct National Democratic Alliance (NDA) of Brown Mpinganjira.

Makungwa is a  close ally to Mpinganjira,  who has also joined DPP.

She was one of the founders of PP together with Mpinganjira.

Santana, the answer to your question is simple: They are joining DPP because they are opportunists. They are looking for positions to earn a living. When MCP gets into power next year you will see them joining MCP.
