Endola is a constituency in the Ohangwena Region of Namibia, on the border of Angola. It has 36,659 inhabitants, the district centre is the settlement of Endola. Ferdinand Ingashipola Shifidi became a councillor of Endola Constituency in November 2014 and was later re-elected in 2015. The constituency is hard-hit by the drought just like the rest of the northern region, but the situation was made worse by lack of drinking water for people and their animals as many water points were disconnected because of unpaid bills. The constituency is also faced with the issue of people who have no national documents. Endola is a flood-prone area with many water pans therefore, good roads are needed to avoid a situation where villages are totally cut off during the rainy season. On the crime front, the constituency is badly affected as it has only one police station at Ongha.
