The vice president of the World Chess Federation (Fide), Ali Nihat Yazici, will visit Rwanda from March 12-14. The Rwanda Chess Federation president Kevin Ganza has said.
Ganza said the aim of Yazici’s visit is to assess the level of the game in Rwanda, especially in schools. Yazici will be accompanied by the president of the African Chess Confederation, Lakdhar Mazouz.
Yazici, who is the chairman of the chess in school commission, is also the president of the Turkish Chess Federation.
“This is a chance for us to take the game to schools. Especially now that we have started to get financial and moral support from the World Chess Federation,” Ganza said.
