Nancy Kacungira-Komla Dumor Award winner
Ugandan Kenya-based journalist, Nancy Kacungira is the first winner of the BBC's World News Komla Dumor Award. Nancy beat close to 200 applicants. The KTN Television news anchor will now spend three months at the BBC in London and then, she will be reporting from Africa for the BBC TV, online and radio programs.

"I am stunned, but also ecstatic upon hearing this news. I am so greatly honoured and humbled to be the winner of this award." I owe it to the continent that I fiercely love and am dedicated to, to do my bit to expand the often dogmatic and skewed narratives that have beleaguered if for so long."

"To be a part of continuing Komla's legacy is such an honour it feels almost like a dream. I will do my very best to justify the great trust that I have been awarded, and ensure that the benefit of this opportunity goes far beyond myself."

"Congratulations to the amazing and multi-talented @kacungira, very well deserved," Uganda's Allan Kasujja, a presenter at the BBC wrote.

The award was established to honour Komla Dumor, a presenter for BBC World News who died at the age of 41.
