IPC faces high demand for membership cards as support grows

The Independent Patriots for Change (IPC) is feeling the pressure to print more membership cards as the party experiences a surge in new members joining daily.

Immanuel Nashinge, the IPC’s National Spokesperson, shared this revelation with the Windhoek Observer yesterday.

“Our door-to-door campaign has yielded positive results, attracting a diverse range of people who have been joining IPC over the past two years,” he stated.

Nashinge attributed the need for additional membership cards to party staff members who are currently on holiday.

He highlighted the increasing number of individuals flocking to the party as a clear sign that Namibians are eager for change and are enthusiastic about exercising their democratic rights by participating in political activities and elections.

He also disclosed that inquiries about how to obtain IPC membership cards have become frequent, saying: “As of now, we will have to print more membership cards because people are already asking to join.”

However, Nashinge clarified that he would only be able to provide an accurate count of new IPC members in February of this year.

“Every week, the number of membership card registrations is sent to our head office for recording and updating. However, I cannot provide you with that figure at this time. I will be in a better position to do so in February of this year,” he explained.

Nashinge said that this year’s actions will be strenuous as the party’s group mobilizers are working diligently.

He urged all mobilizers to educate people at the grassroots level about politics to ensure a better understanding of why they should join IPC before the November elections.

“Our insights come from the grassroots, which is why we advocate for democracy at that level,” he noted.

Nashinge stressed that people have the right to join political parties of their choice, and he believes that joining IPC is the right choice.

One of IPC’s more recent members, Shigwedha Timoteus, explained that he chose to join the party because it presented an alternative with its unique manifesto and efforts to enlighten many people.

He mentioned that in the past, people were relatively uninformed and lacked exposure to political influences. Instead, they merely attended rallies, listened to speeches, and voted as if they were political instruments.

The IPC’s growing popularity and the increasing demand for membership cards suggest that the political landscape in Namibia may be in for some interesting developments in the months leading up to the upcoming elections.
