In an article published in The Zone, dated 3 September and titled ‘Protecting the queen’, it was stated that 500 players are expected from across the continent for the 2019 African Youth Chess Championships, which will be hosted by Namibia. However, 500 delegates are in fact expected, which includes players and those accompanying them. Additionally, the Namibia Chess Federation is currently faced with a deficit of N$2 million, in terms of the funds needed to host the championships and hopes that private and public institutions will assist. It has thus not raised N$3 million, as the article said. The Zone humbly apologises for the errors and any inconvenience that may have arisen.
