Javier Bella & Titus Musembi emerged as the top players in the U18 and U16 categories respectively in the the Kitui School Chess Tournament which was held last weekend.
The event organised by Samuel Mwimenyi was a resounding success with 19 players in the U16 category and 10 players in the U18 category. An interesting observation in this event was that we had more girls (16) than boys (13)!
The event attracted 3 schools in the region St Charles Lwanga, St Ursula and Mosa Secondary School.
Future events are expected to attract many more players as School Heads and Principals become aware of the importance of chess.
Organiser Samuel Mwimenyi is now working on the Kitui Open which will hopefully will take place in mid 2018.
