Itula sheds light on IPC’s donors for new bakkies

• By Kaipaherue Kandjii

The president of the Independent Patriots for Change (IPC), Dr Panduleni Itula, says they secured political “donations” as a form of funding allowed by law, from which they acquired assets they own.

In a rare two-hour, 44-minute wide-ranging interview with Africa Speaks on Monday, Itula reacted to his critics, whom he says “passed laws and regulations” legalising political funding.

Yet again, he went on to demand that he declare the IPC’s donors to the public, while only the electoral authority remains the custodian of such records.

He emphasised that IPC has a “carefully recorded” register of all its assets, including its offices, vehicles, and donors, and submits its bill of financial health to the Electoral Commission of Namibia (ECN) for yearly scrutiny.

He says the source of funds is permitted by the laws and regulations governing the ECN, which include guidelines on limitations on both local and foreign donors.
