"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.
