Capital reporter scoops regional award

VICTORIA FALLS, Jun 9 – Capital FM’s Senior Business Reporter Evelyn Njoroge was among two other journalists awarded with certificates of recognition for winning the inaugural COMESA media awards.

The award ceremony held at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe came after the launch of a Customs Union which marks a significant step in the realisation of a deeper regional economic intergration.
The three were recognised for their exceptional work in highlighting issues of regional integration.

The awards followed a decision by the COMESA Authority in a meeting held in 2006 to introduce the COMESA Media Awards to spur interest in reporting and highlighting the integration process.
Ms Njoroge won in the radio category while the two other journalists from Uganda won the TV and Print categories.

She won for her story on the phasing out of the multi-fibre agreement, which looked at the implications it would have on developing countries especially in the COMESA region, such as job cuts.

She has also been nominated as a finalist for the Diageo African Business Awards, Best Radio Feature category for her story titled ‘When Your Access Card Stops Working’; about the ongoing global financial crisis.

The Sixth Annual Africa Business Reporting Awards winners will be announced at a gala ceremony in London on July 2.
