Pretoria- President Jacob Zuma is to participate in the inaugural KwaZulu-Natal Chess Tournament tomorrow.

The tournament, organised at the request of the President, will be held at the Nkandla Community Hall at 2pm. It is aimed at teaching the youth patience and strategic thinking as well as to promote recreational activity in rural areas.

"President Zuma is an ardent chess player and wants to see the game being rolled out in various remote communities of the province as it requires minimal infrastructure," said the Presidency on Monday.
