A section of TanaRiver County emblem designers have cried foul over the short notice given to them to defend their emblems.
Speaking on phone, one of the designers complained that the official notice was posted on the official WhatsApp emblem designers forum very late; a day to the presentations that most of the designers were caught off-guard as a number of them are students and residing outside the county.
” I saw comments on our WhatsApp forum concerning the presentations yet most of us who are active members knew nothing about the issue, we had to ask hard questions for the assigned emblem director to post the official notice, this is proof that some of the presenters had before hand information which is not fair all participants are supposed to have equal time and information for preparation….” he lamented.
Another presenter complained that of the three of emblems that made it to the final stage, one was never defended by the owner who was not present so he wondered how it sailed through.
Another one complained that despite that he was an active emblem designer in their forum, his name was missing in the participants list which forced him to make last minute rush to be included in the list and this really had him not having satisfactory presentations.
The event took place at Milele guest house and a total of ten participants took part. Three emblems sailed to the finals which will take place on a later date.
