It's the second year in a row Ronke has won the award. This year, it was for her piece on the horrific murder of a 15 year old boy killed by his sister and her partner, they believed, to protect another child from evil spirits.
A West African born couple were found guilty of torturing and murdering Kristy Bamu and were jailed for life in March last year. The judge at the Old Bailey said the case had been so harrowing the jury would be exempted from any further service for the rest of their lives.
Ronke Phillips travelled to the Congo with African Religion expert Dr Richard Hoskins, to investigate the origins of the belief system which cost Kristy his life and its connection to London.
