Late last week, the 3rd edition of Zuri Awards was held at Kempisnki Hotel.

The event was curated in 2017 to recognize and celebrate outstanding women, in line with the International Women’s Day theme. In 2019, the event increased the number of awards from 4-14 to showcase more women making a difference in various market segments, such as agriculture, health care, innovation, business, media, sports, finance, to mention but a few. Some of the notable winners this year included Winnie Wanjiku who bagged the Young Achiever award for her Angamiza Kunguni project, and Agnes Nonsizi who emerged the winner in the media category.
