Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) Kisii branch members have elected new officials.

The election of a new chairman, assistant executive secretary and secretary in charge of tertiary institution took place three months after a previous by-election was disrupted by members.

On Saturday however, Laban Ouko was elected as new Chairman after garnering 623 votes, defeating his closest challenger Tom Ombwori who got 432 votes in a hotly contested poll.

Ouko will be taking over from Osoro Okondo who was appointed as the Chief Officer for Roads in the Kisii County Government.
