The competitions, which were held last Saturday April 27, 2024 at Chavakali Boys High School and graced by KUPPET National Chairman and Emuhaya MP Omboko Milemba among other dignitaries, were the second one after they were inaugurated last year where Luanda Sub-county emerged position one.

Speaking during the event, KUPPET Vihiga Executive Secretary Sabala Inyeni confirmed that many Junior Secondary School (JSS) teachers in the county were taking part in the competitions.

“We are excited to see JSS teachers joining us because this is where they belong. We have asked them to compete in all the disciplines available,” said Inyeni.
