OTJIWARONGO



Independent Patriots for Change (IPC), one of the country's newest political parties headed by Dr Panduleni Itula, has submitted names of the candidates who will represent the party in the regional and local authority elections next month for the Otjiwarongo district.

IPC was the second party to submit their candidate list and receive an acknowledgement letter from the Electoral Commission of Namibia ahead of the deadline on Friday.

The names were submitted by IPC representative Martin Strauss.

The party has selected Erastus Mbumba to stand as its representative.



Facing off again

He contested as an independent candidate on 9 March for the position of constituency councillor, which was left vacant when Julius Neumbo died in a car accident last year.

Mbumba went head-to-head with current Otjiwarongo constituency councillor Maralyn Mbakera, and the two are set to face off again in the November elections.

IPC has lined up 12 candidates who they hope will lead the local authority. Of the top seven candidates, four are women.

The candidates are Lee-Anne Liebenberg, Beata Kambowe, Toivo Ndjalo, Johannes Kamulumbu, Elvira Pitout, Frederika Elizabeth Botha, Martin Haimwene, Gideon Iyambo, Rabbi Kalomo, Jason Angombe, Iilonga Makarius and Morne du Toit.
