Zambia chess interview with national champions

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Daniel Jere has recently won the men’s category of the Chess Federation of Zambia closed championship. This is the 3rd major achievement this year for Jere, who also won himself a silver medal at the September All Africa Games in Mozambique and a Gold Medal at the Botswana Open. The championship in the male category had previously been held by the Gillian Bwalya, who failed to defend his title. In the female category, 18-year-old Epah Tembo emerged winner. Here is a video interview with the winners.

We particularly carried this video to celebrate the 'chess awakening'  that is sweeping (well, almost) Africa at this time. We hope for Africa to join mainstream chess with grandmasters aplenty soon.
