Speaking at the event, Vice Chairperson of the GIPF Board, Evan Maswahu, said the Outapi Regional Office, an investment of N.dollars 6 million, resulted from the Fund’s commitment made in 2022.

Its construction phase, he said provided job opportunities in addition to the employment opportunities for the full-time GIPF employees.

‘Since the inception of the Fund, we have set deep footprints that are visible through our 11 regional and four satellite offices spread across all 14 regions, meeting the needs and expectations of our members who are not all based in Windhoek but span across all corners of the country,’ he said.

He noted that the Outapi office is a result of the fund’s strategic intent and mandate to provide retirement and ancillary benefits to its members and beneficiaries, which can only be achieved through regional presence and visibility.
