Rumours are fresh on social media that former Minister of Lands Kamlepo Kalua is planning a switch to join the Tonse Alliance from DPP.
Kamlepo has since remained silent on the issue, however, people close to him indicate it will happen very soon.
Akometsi also understands that UDF President Atupele Muluzi is another politician exploring possible ways to align his party with the Tonse Government. The young Muluzi is a friend of both Chakwera and Chilima.
Surprising name on the list of those wishing to switch sides is that of Jomo who is answering a number of charges on crimes he committed in the past.
Akometsi understands that Jomo, real name Isaac Osman has been approaching Tonse Government high figures to offer his services and be part of the administration.
