Popular KTN news anchor wins top award

The anchor was recognised for his special contribution that impacted the lives of Kenyans.

The UN held the first ever conference on Tuesday at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) with the theme: Ending FGM is a political decision - Building bridges for elimination of FGM in Kenya.

Media personalities such as Nairobi Women Representative Esther Passaris and Swahili KTN news anchor Ali Manzu were present during the conference where the latter won an award for his contribution within the movement to end FGM in Kenya.

Taking to his social media, Ali Manzu dedicated the award to the survivors of FGM that came out to say not to the inhumane practice while encouraging the need for awareness of stopping FGM.

He wrote: "Team work allows us to reach the heights of excellence and perform the extraordinary by touching other people’s story and bring them to life. I dedicate this  award to the survivors who came out and faced the world and said  May your hopes and dreams come true. You can. To the KTN News fam, let’s inform the public," read his Facebook post.

The end FGM initiative was first introduced in 2003.
