After that success he started fighting as a senior boxer and his meteoric rise continued the next year when he beat Namibia's future WBO bantamweight world champion Paulus Ambunda. Indongo completed his schooling in 2002 and moved to Windhoek the next year when he excelled at the National Championships to win the 54kg gold medal. By 2007 Indongo made the national team that competed at the All Africa Games in Algeria, and he made a fine debut winning his opening two fights before losing to a Tunisian opponent in the quarterfinals.
