Hi everyone, 

This is the latest chess news update from the Uganda National Chess Championships 2013: Elijah Emojong, Haruna Nsubuga and Harold Wanyama maintained their lead after beating Daniel Bagaadde, Grace Nsubuga and Shadrack Kantinti respectively in the fourth round of the Uganda National Chess Championships at Pope Paul Memorial Hotel on Sunday 14 April 2013. The results put the trio on 3.5 points each out of a possible 4. They are closely followed by Patrick Kawuma and Raphael Buti at 3 points apiece. Kawuma beat Jordan Teeba while Buti drew with Aaron Kanaabi in the fourth round.
