Our Reporter Portia Ngwako-Mlilo had a chat with this multi skilled and award winning sport administrator woman to discuss her passion for nurturing talent and sport development.
Q. What made you start chess academy?
A. The main objective was to compliment the efforts of the Botswana Chess Federation in growing and advancing the game of chess in Botswana.
I have been in the federation administration for over 8 years and I appreciate that the federation executive committee cannot achieve this alone and therefore needs active affiliates to help it achieve its mandate.
