Oliver Zizinga joined the National Resistance Army (NRA) struggle after three of her children were killed in 1980, by soldiers of the Uganda National Liberation Army (UNLA), the armed wing of Milton Obote II’s government.

Together with Oliver Zizinga and Joy Mirembe, Gertrude Njuba joined the National Resistance Council in late 1981. She became one of the most powerful figures in the NRC, later assuming responsibility for a mass mobilisation at the NRM Secretariat.
