adeeko ibukun from nigeria

Here you find the official statement on the Babishai Niwe Poetry Award. A poetry Festival was held in Uganda and now the name of the winner has been made know in this official statement (at the festival it was already known 😉 ). 

I assume the name of one member of the jury has been misspelled : it is the name of the writer and journalist and poet Antjie Krog. Let us say: it is poetical freedom.
