    John Cheburet, a journalist from The Organic Farmer – a magazine and a radio show aired on the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation – won first prize in an Africa-wide scriptwriting competition on smallholder farmer innovation. Fourteen other radio broadcasters and producers also won prizes for their entries.

    John impressed an international panel of judges with his script about an innovative Kenyan farmer who uses sawdust to lengthen the storage period of potatoes.
