Leaders of the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers, at County level, have devised new ways of rewarding teachers who excel in sports. From KUPPET branded Polo shirts, tracksuits, drinking water, trophies to cash prizes.

In Kisii county, it was all smiles for teachers whose teams excelled after bagging KUPPET branded track suits. Beneficiaries are those whose teams clinched tickets to the Nyanza region term one championship slated for next week at Rapogi high school in Migori. During the Kisii County championship, that ended on Saturday at Cardinal Otunga High School, participants quenched their thirst by gallons of KUPPET branded water.

The leadership led by the branch Secretary Omari Otungu and Chair Laban Bosire promised more sponsorship next time; with referees requesting for consideration.

In the neighboring county, Migori, it was a similar scenario. The Kuppet branch executive Secretary Orwa samwel (Jasolo) led other leaders to award teachers at the County term one championship that came to a climax over this last weekend. The leadership donated KUPPET branded water, Caps and trophies.

Nyamira has not been left behind either. The branch leadership, led by executive Secretary Lewis Nyakweba, has come in-handy during the various co-curricular activities’ meets. Teachers and especially coaches and referees have been kitted with KUPPET branded polo shirts; with more goodies lined up this year.

But, the naysayers would have none of this and sees it as a campaigning strategy. “Where have they been? Only waking up in the last minute because of the forth coming elections!” Quipped a teacher who sought for anonymity. KUPPET elections are to be held next year from branch to national level.

Whether a campaigning strategy or not, the bottom line is that indeed KUPPET is doing a great job at Branch level.
