NRM Candidate for Arua Municipality, Nusra Tiperu(Third Right n yellow) with some of the women in Arua town

ARUA is yellow as thousands of women dressed in yellow are marching on the streets in support of their NRM party flag bearer, Nusura Tiperu.

The yellow women say the march is in solitary of their colleague, Tiperu – the only female cansidate in the race.

The camps got hotter and energised when the party Secretary General camped there and tipped fellow women on the advantages of having a fellow woman in such a position. Lumumba joined several other national party officials who have been in Arua since the commencement of campaigns.
