Nsubuga Haruna and Kabengano Joyce off to Zonal

Uganda's two representatives in this year's Zone 4.2 Africa Chess Championship; Haruna Nsubuga and Joyce Kabengano have departed for Cairo, Egypt aboard Egypt Air and were scheduled to arrive on the morning of Friday 21 November 2014 in time for the event whose 9 round games commence on 22 November 2014.
This is the third consecutive time that Uganda participates in a zonal Chess Championship. The country has previously been represented at the events by IM Elijah Emojong, Goretti Angolikin and Christine Namaganda. Emojong attained his IM title from last year's zonal which was also held in Egypt after emerging second and registering a score above the required 66.6 percent for such a title.
In the male category, Nsubuga will be up against one Egyptian Grandmaster in Amin Bassem (2623), four other Egyptian IMs including Ezat Mohammed (2465), Abdel Razik Khaled (2451), Hesham Abdelrahman (2352) and Sarwat Walwa (2357). There are also players from Burundi, Rwanda, Tanzania and Kenya. Players from Tanzania, Kenya and Rwanda will be making debuts at this event.
Kenya's male representative is fast rising Moses Andiwoh who is no stranger to Haruna as the former has featured in some events in Uganda.
Nsubuga, rated 2141 will be raring to go and itching to put in a result that will grant him a title out of the event. A minimum of a 50 percent score, which is at least 4.5 points out of 9 would grant him the much coveted FIDE Master title.
Kabengano will mainly be up against Egyptian opposition as only two countries; Kenya and Uganda have sent representatives in the female category to join the 6 female Egyptians participating in the event.
Uganda Chess Federation President, Vianney Luggya is the current President of Zone 4.2 which comprises of nine countries including Tanzania, Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Sudan, Seychelles, Burundi, Egypt and Uganda.
