The High Court in Arua has issued a warrant of arrest for the former Arua Municipality Parliamentary Aspirant Nusura Tiperu.

Tiperu is accused for failing to pay election petition costs worth 83 Million Shillings.

The warrant of arrest was signed by the Assistant Deputy Registrar of Arua High Court.

“This is to command you to arrest Hon. Nusura Tiperu the Judgement debtor to pay to you the sum of UGX 83,880,400 together with the sum for costs of executing this process and bring her to court with all convenient speed,” reads the warrant.

In September 2018, Tiperu petitioned the High Court, seeking nullification of Independent candidate Kassiano Wadri’s victory. She sued Wadri and the Electoral Commission, claiming that the Wadri and his agents incited violence while the EC registered non-residents for the election.

 In March, Justice Anthony Oyuko Ojok dismissed the petition with costs on grounds that Tiperu failed to convince the court that there were irregularities in the electoral process.

On Thursday, Wadri said that together with his Lawyer Donato Kania, they have been expecting the money for the last six months in vain.
