On 20 February 2010 Joseph Kabila reshuffled the cabinet. Adolphe Muzito was retained as Prime Minister and Francois Joseph Nzanga Mobutu kept his post as Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Employment, Labor and Welfare. The number of members of government was reduced from 54 to 43.[2]

François-Joseph Nzanga Mobutu was fired in March 2011. Bernard Biondo, Minister of External Trade and a member of Mobutu's UDEMO party, resigned in solidarity. Minister of Rural Development Philippe Undji was fired and jailed for embezzlement. In September 2011, the Decentralization Minister Antipas Mbusa Nyamwisi resigned to run for president. A minor cabinet reshuffle was announced on 11 September 2011. The Ministry of Decentralization was abolished. Jean-Pierre Daruwezi became head of the National Intelligence Agency, and Louis Alphonse Daniel Koyagialo Ngbase te Gerengbo became Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of PTT. Other appointments were Jean-Pierre Daruwezi as Minister of Economy, Justin Kalumba Mwana Ngongo as Minister of External Trade and Charles Alulea Mengulwa as Minister Rural Development.[3]
