About The Award

The Wakini Kuria Prize for Children’s Literature was established in 2019 to honour the memory and legacy of Wakini Kuria who served on the Advisory board of the African Writers Development Trust and as the Chief Editor of Writers Space Africa (WSA) magazine from 2017 until her demise in 2019. The previous winners are Marjorie Moono Simuyuni (Zambia), Madeha Ezekial Malecela  (Tanzania), Blessing Aliyu Tarfa (Nigeria) and Halieo Motanyane (Lesotho).

Wakini was a pillar of support towards the successful hosting of the maiden edition of the African Writers Conference in Abuja, Nigeria in 2018. She also worked tirelessly towards the hosting of the conference in September 2019, in Nairobi Kenya. Her hard work and passion is still seen in all that we do at WSA and AWDT.

Additionally, Wakini was a recipient of the African Writers Award of Merit in 2018 as well as numerous accolades from across Africa. She has inspired several writers across the African continent with her work and was exceptionally talented, kind-hearted, highly spirited, and joyful.
