    The award was presented to Otieno by Ruben West, Special Envoy for IChange Nations. 

    The journalist appreciated the award noting that it is a boast to his career in reporting and communication development.  

    Otieno was flanked by his family and friends in celebrating the milestone. 

    The IChange global award was founded by an American known as Clyde Rivers. He holds a Doctor of Divinity from the Latin University of Theology and a Doctor of Philosophy from United Graduate College and Seminary International.

    The award seeks to bring back the lost art of honour by building a culture that recognises individuals throughout the world who have exemplified extraordinary humanitarian efforts to effectively change nations. 

    "We honour people and organizations that believe every life is valuable and is created to bring a contribution to the world. ICN is the largest “building cultures of honour," the organisation states on their website.

    Other Kenyans who have been feted by the organisation include Nancy Wamaitha and Bishop Daniel Kwesi. Wamaitha was feted in 2021 recognising her contribution, continued commitment, and dedication to empowering and elevating the lives of others.

    She advocates and supports girls' education, growth, and development.

    Kwesi was also honoured in the same year. The ordained pastor is the founder of Voice of Kenyans Foundation, an organisational body focused on the nation's healing, reconciliation, peace, and cohesion.
