The other permanent secretary at the OPM is Andreas Mwoombola who is responsible for implementation and monitoring. Nashandi has been replaced by Esther Lusepani at the poverty eradication ministry. Government has also announced the appointment of Annely Haiphene as the new PS at the National Planning Commission, replacing Leevi Hungamo who resigned last year.
