Naomie Nkurunziza was awarded alongside senior state officials, farmers and the country’s national football team which had just qualified for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Also awarded at the ceremony which was held on May 1, 2019, was a judo champion, governors and district administrators. The ceremony took place at a sports stadium at Rumonge, about 80km from the capital Bujumbura.
