In my earlier post I had mentioned that there was this event that was coming up soon.  Well the dates are now changed from 14th to 18th March to run from 16th to 18th March 2012.  This event is organised by Chess Kenya and sponsored by Andolo Ambasi who is the Supremo of Chess Kenya.

The venue is Sirikwa Hotel, in Eldoret and the time control is 90 minutes to complete the game.  The top prize is still KShs 30,000 ( USD 350) for the open and another KShs 30,000 for the ladies section.

The strange this there has not been much publicity for this event either in the press or Facebook.

I will not go for the event due to work pressure but will keep my readers posted on what is happening.

It seems that this event has been organised as a PR campaign for the forthcoming Chess Kenya elections which are schedule for 22nd April 2012.  Well I have paid up my membership and will bring you live reporting from the AGM which is expected to be stormy and hot………I will carry my camera, laptop and modem and hope to send some video clips as well as the drama unfolds…………
