SOS alum wins CNN MultiChoice African Journalist of the Year Award for 2014

SOS alum and photographer Joseph Mathenge was named CNN's MultiChoice African Journalist for 2014. Joseph was recognized for the incredible photos he captured of the September 2013 terrorist attack at the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya.


Joseph, who grew up with two of his siblings in the SOS Children's Village Nairobi, honed his skills as a photographer in the SOS Village -- eventually becoming its staff photographer. He went on to become a photojournalist and, later, photographic editor for the Nation Media Group.

We congratulate Joseph for his successes and wish him many more.
