Expressing his gratitude on social media, Waihiga expressed his surprise at receiving the award. He reflected on the significance of the winning story, “The Saudi Allure,” which shed light on the need for accountability following the tragic deaths of young women in Saudi Arabia. These deaths left families grappling for answers, as many were diagnosed with alleged heart attacks or cardiac arrests.
