The current Minister of Communication and Aviation, Commins Mewa, is to take the role of Minister of Police, National Security and Correctional Services, now held by Peter Shanel Agovaka.

In August three ministers were moved and in May another two swaps were made in the Cabinet, which was first formed just 9 months ago.
