I leave chess a better product - Sitale

"I have fought a good fight, I have kept my faith and I have won my battle." This is how outgoing Botswana Chess Federation (BCF) president Tshepo Sitale has summed his stay at the helm.

As BCF affiliates converge on Mokala Lodge in Jwaneng tomorrow for the Annual General Meeting (AGM) and executive elections, Sitale will not seek re-election. The 32-year-old former Letlhakane Senior Secondary School player believes he has played his part and it is time to pass on the baton.

Sitale has been in charge for five years. He took over in 2008 as an interim president after a motion of confidence was passed on the former president. The Tutume born former chess star steps down a proud man. He said his priority when he took over was to rebrand chess, something that he believes he has achieved.
