Adolphe Muzito (born 1957?[1] in Gungu, Kwilu Province) is a Congolese politician who is currently the Prime Minister of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Muzito, a member of the Unified Lumumbist Party (PALU), was previously Minister of the Budget under Prime Minister Antoine Gizenga from 2007 to 2008.

Muzito, who is from Gungu, Kwilu Province, is an economist.[1] In the government that was appointed on 5 February 2007, Muzito was included as Minister of the Budget.[2] After Gizenga, the leader of PALU, resigned as Prime Minister on 25 September 2008 for reasons related to age and health, Muzito was appointed by President Joseph Kabila to succeed Gizenga on 10 October 2008.[1]

Muzito's government was appointed on 26 October 2008. Aside from Muzito himself, it included 53 members: three deputy prime ministers, 36 ministers, and 14 deputy ministers.[3] The government was dominated by members of the People's Party for Reconstruction and Democracy, and Kabila described it as "combat team to which has been assigned the essential missions of security and reconstruction".[4]
