Award-winning NTV journalist Rose Wangui is the winner of the prestigious 2019 Knight International Journalism Award.

Wangui was awarded for her bold approach in covering sensitive topics and giving a voice to the voiceless, bringing their plight, hopes and dreams to the wider audience.

Speaking at the event held in Washington DC, pledged that she will carry on with her outstanding work, giving a voice to the voiceless through her unique coverage of sensitive topics such as sexual bondage of young girls in Kenya.

"Each time I tell a story, I try to ensure that every word that I write bears the hopes and dreams of those people in the villages, towns and slums who may never have the opportunity that I have to reach a bigger audience, ”stated Wangui.

The scribe challenged journalist to have an impact in the society through unique coverage.

"Journalists should strive to tell stories that change people's perception and make society better," added Wangui.

Her outstanding works such as beads of bondage and schools of misery have had significant impact in the country and sparked a national conversation, prompting relevant authorities and well-wishers to address the situation.

“I wanted to show viewers something they've never seen, something they've never had,” said Wangui. “I decided to focus more on human interest stories and to go to some of the most remote areas in Kenya.” Wanui revealed at a past interview.
