ARUA- In an effort to retain Arua Municipality Parliamentary seat, the ruling NRM party has intensified its campaigns with improvised new strategies that will leave no single voter isolated.
It has been witnessed that a team of NRM moves household after the other preaching Party gospel.
The team that is headed by the NRM Regional Chairperson Hon Sam Engola and the Deputy SG Hon Richard Todwong has tirelessly pitched camp in the Municipality to help the Flag bearer Hon Nusura Tiperu win this hotly contested race.
Sources reaching PML Daily reveal that the team is holding meetings at every Ward/Parish level attended by several leaders who include LCI leaders, women councils, members of the NRM committees at both village and Ward, LCII committees, area councillors and LCII councils among other categories of leaders.
According to Hon Todwong, the exercise is progressing well and it’s effective in delivering the campaign messages to the voters.
The team has so far covered two wards, ‘Kenya and Pangisha’ out of six that make up Arua Municipality.
The forthcoming Arua Municipality by-election is scheduled August 15.
The seat fell vacant after the incumbent, Col Ibrahim Abiriga, was gunned down alongside his brother, Saidi Kongo, in Kawanda, Wakiso District, on June 8.
