Renown activist Boniface Mwangi is the recipient of the coveted Outstanding Youth Peacemaker award at the 9th annual Luxembourg Peace Prize ceremony.
The activist at the 9th annual Luxembourg Peace Prize ceremony held at the University of Luxembourg as part of the Compassionate Leadership Summit on Climate, Health and Peace and the 5th Annual Transatlantic Dialogue conference.
The event was graced by distinguished peacemakers representing a diverse mix of Activists, Educators, Leaders, and Artists from around the world in ten categories.
“Boniface Mwangi Is one of the most vocal and courageous Kenyans of our generation. Recognized globally for his passion and excellence in photography, this photographer-cum-activist could not resist the call to activism after witnessing, first-hand, the brutality that disadvantaged Kenyans experienced in the wake of the Post- Election Violence of 2008,” the Luxembourg Peace Prize website stated.
Mwangi has been a vocal activist both locally and internationally, speaking the truth to power and holding leaders to account.
