Rumbidzai Mawire U10 girls was tied 3rd but 4th on tiebreak with 6.5 points. Also missing the title/medal by a wisker just like
Kudzai…very close but yet so far.
Our U18 Africa Youth Chess Champs Zambia 2015 star CM Sifiso Ncube is now a Fide Master (FM). Well done!! He won bronze after drawing his last round game.
