No, I'd call it spring if I had to compare it to a season I'm familiar with. It comes after kipupwe, winter.

Previously, the answer to 'vuli' was given as 'the season of short rains'; this was rejected here - and, also previously, 'autumn' was translated as 'vuli', but the reverse translation was rejected.

Equatorial seasons are so different to those in temperate climes that it would be better just to use the Swahili word, imho. c.f. our old friend 'ugali'.
