Walvis Bay junior mayor Helena Ipinge switched on the Christmas decorative lights during the mayoral festival of unity at the town hall on Sunday.

Mayor Immanuel Wilfred entrusted the actual switching on of the lights to Ipinge.

“I decided to empower the youth and took a back seat,” said the mayor who attended the proceedings and observed the occasion with hundreds of residents.

“We are extending a warm welcome to all visitors at the coast. It is festive and there is so much going on. Let us not forget to be cautious and adhere to the rules of the road at all times. We wish you a fantastic festive holiday and encourage everybody to enjoy all aspects of the beautiful port city,” said Ipinge in her welcoming remarks.

Ipinge and her fellow junior councillors handed out hundreds of gift packs to children. The youngsters were also treated to a treasure hunt while everybody including elderly community members enjoyed live gospel music by the Christian Assembly Ministries band.

The VGK and Rhynse church groups entertained the crowd with dance performances and candles were lit to signify peace and unity before the Christmas decorative lights were finally switched on.
