The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) Nyamira Branch concluded its elections with only two officials surviving the wave of change.  

The polls ended months of spirited campaigns, which was characterised by two camps - Team Office and Team Change.

Team Office mainly comprised incumbents who were fighting to retain their seats while Team Change had those seeking elective posts in the union for the first time.

Of the incumbents, only the Chairman, George Makaa, and the Executive Secretary, Lewis Nyakweba, retained their positions.
