Following their trip to South Africa, Messrs Freeman, Mazouz, Sitale and Jones made the first ever FIDE visit to Swaziland bearing the 100 sets and boards and 30 clocks that FIDE donates to new member Federations.

They held meetings with Arnold Dlamini, the Mayor of Mbabane and with the National Sports Council and the Ministry of Education, as well as Prince Masitsela, eldest son of late King Sobheza and Administrator of Manzini region.

The trip was rounded off by a trip to St Michael’s School, Manzini, where FIDE Treasurer and Executive Director, Nigel Freeman planted a tree and the FIDE delegation were entertained by a poem from some of the students and another poem recited by the pre-school. This was followed by a live chess game.
