We woke up to good news that Victoria Rubadiri is the sixth winner of the BBC World News Komla Dumor award.
She is the second Kenyan to win the award after her fellow colleague, Wahiga Mwaura.
Speaking for the first time on the award she took to social media,
"It’s an absolute honor to play a small role in elevating the memory of the indomitable Komla Dumor. Thank you to @BBCWorld for the incredible recognition. To every person and institution that walked the journey with me, I’m grateful. Here’s to African journalism and telling our authentic stories. The journey is only beginning."
Rubadiri will begin her three-month placement at the BBC by attending a training course with the BBC Academy before joining BBC News teams - across TV, radio and online - which will provide her with the opportunity to gain skills and experience across BBC News platforms.
