Nomination of the journalist Solange Lusiko for the Anne Klein Prize

In autumn 2016, Neno nominated the Congolese journalist Solange Lusiku for the 2017 Anne Klein Prize from the Heinrich Böll Foundation.

Despite the constant threats, the courageous journalist reports in her newspaper “Le Souverain” about the miseries of Congolese politics and advocates for women’s rights.
