Botswana Chess Federation (BCF) executive committee additional member, Alex Mpuisang has accused colleagues of sabotage following his recent trip to Russia for the Olympiad.

Mpuisang said some federation members have always mistreated him, and things came to a head after the trip to Russia.

He said he had to force the federation to buy him an air ticket to travel to the former Soviet Union. Mpuisang said he had been invited to officiate at the Olympiad by the International Chess Federation (FIDE) and felt that the BCF was supposed to provide necessary requirements. He said FIDE was sponsoring the trip but was only going to provide funds when he got to Russia, which meant he had to buy his ticket. He was further frustrated when upon return from the Olympiad, nothing was mentioned about his achievement in the media. The official said the BCF has failed to recognise him despite being the first Motswana to officiate at the Olympiad.
