OUTGOING Walvis Bay urban constituency councillor Knowledge Ipinge has conceded defeat and congratulated the Independent Patriots for Change candidate Deriou Benson early this morning.
Referring to the ruling party Swapo, Ipinge in a congratulatory message on his Facebook page, said: “What matters most is that I’m not handing over the keys to the corrupt regime.”

He promised to continue to fight for the community through activism until they get Walvis Bay right.
“I would like to thank every single person who voted for me and wholeheartedly believes in my leadership skills,” said Ipinge.
