by Oliver Shalala in Namibia, Windhoek

African Chess Confederation (ACC) president Lewis Ncube this afternoon reiterated the need for chess programmes and activities in Africa to be highlighted to all federations in Africa and to the whole world.

“We need to come up with strategies to ensure there is good communication among chess stakeholders to develop the sport in the continent. We also need to ensure there is good publicity of African chess programmes and activities so that the work being done in Africa is known by all,” said Mr Ncube during the ACC Events and Publicity Commission meeting held parallel to the Africa Individual Chess Championships in Windhoek, Namibia.

Mr Ncube also bemoaned the luck of profiling of African achievements in chess.

“We will need to recognise the great chess players we have in Africa and encourage others to match their performance or do better.”

The meeting which had commission members representing all zones of Africa came up with strategies to get information about chess in Africa being shared as widely and as timely as possible.
