National Individual Schools’ Chess Championships Begin

The national individual school chess championships began at Moi Girls High School in Eldoret on Monday afternoon.

According to John Mukabi, the Secretary General of Chess Kenya, the four-day tournament features around 1600 participants, making it one of the largest in Africa.

Mukabi told Citizen Digital that the competition has thus far been a success, with four rounds completed at the time of writing.

Mukabi stated, “Everything went according to plan. There were two rounds yesterday. Three more rounds will take place today (Tuesday), with another three taking place tomorrow, making it eight rounds . The winners will have been identified by the end of tomorrow.”

Mukabi said that athletes like Africa Junior champion Elizabeth Cassidy, five-time national junior champion Laurencia Minange, and incumbent Africa u7s champion Winnie Kaburu would likely win their respective divisions.

When asked if there were any competitors with the ability to unseat these players, Mukabi responded, “From round number four onwards, we will really get to see whether they (Cassidy, Minage, and Kaburu) are being threatened or not.”

The winners of the various categories will qualify for the Africa Individual Schools Championships (AISCC), which will take place in Monrovia, Liberia, between December 8 and 19.
