Alice Alaso joins Serere MP race

Bethel | 95timefm


Former Serere Woman MP Alice Alaso has announced that she will contest for the Serere County parliamentary seat that fell vacant after the incumbent, Patrick Okabe, died in a motor accident last month.

Ms Alaso, who is also the national coordinator of Alliance for National Transformation party, will be jostling for the seat with Mr Emmanuel Omoding Okabe, the son of the late MP; Phillip Oucor, the NRM party flag bearer; and two independents, Emmanuel Eratu and Martin Ongurucu.

Alaso, who has twice lost the Serere Woman MP race to Ms Hellen Adoa, at the weekend asked the people to vote for her so that she can calm the political tensions in the area, which she says have been escalated by the ruling NRM party.
