The award has been handed over by the president Oxfam/PEN Uganda Danson Kahyana.
The tearful Nyanzi while at Uganda Museum this morning thanked Oxfam/PEN international for being by her side while in prison and empowering her to continue writing poems.
Dr. Stella Nyanzi, while in prison, also won the prestigious Oxfam Novib/PEN International Award for Freedom of Expression 2020.
