The 3rd edition of Miss Tourism Kilifi County final was held on Saturday at the SAI Eden Rock in Malindi.
The final event was a culmination of many weeks of auditions done by a team of professional judges in each of the seven sub counties of Kilifi County.
At the end of the event, Peggy Mati, who is a third year journalism student at Daystar University was crowned the winner. Ms Peggy will now compete for the national title with other ladies representing other counties.
However, the organizers of the event were left in an awkward situation when they failed to provide an actual symbolic crown for the winner.
Efforts to reach the organizing committee for an explanation were futile. This is even after promising an interview after the event, a promise they broke.
In attendance were the County Executive for education Ms Salma Muhiddin, Chief Officer for ICT Mr. Mohammed Chuba, Tourism Chief Officer Patience Pekeshe and other local leaders.
