Dr. Lyndon Bouah is well-known in African chess circles, but specifically for being a longtime advocate for chess in South Africa. Dr. Bouah completed his doctorate at the University of the Western Cape in 2016 with the thesis titled, “An Analysis of the Implementation of the National Sport and Recreation Plan in the Western Cape.”

He serves as the Chief Director for Sport and Recreation in the Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport in the Western Cape. Most recently, he published a new book titled, “Reflection on Chess in the Rainbow Nation,” an inside look at chess activities in South Africa. The book comes in a handsome hardback version and goes for R250 (US$17.15).

Dr. Bouah announced launched the book on FM Calvin Klaasen’s twitch channel and spent more than an hour recounting his experience and sharing his nuggets of wisdom with the live audience. These types of books are a treasure for the prosperity of growing chess communities and Dr. Bouah is planning on additional volumes.
