Botswana on the way to enter the gaming fraternity.
From left to right: Tiro Tirelo, Colin Webster, and Angel Ayman Setombeko IV.
Because Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) was founded in 1985 and accepted as a sporting code in 1991 by both COSAS (Confederation of South African Sport) and NOSC (National Olympic Sports Council), MSSA knows just how difficult it is to get gaming to be accredited as a sport.
Thus MSSA goes out of its way to assist other countries to form National Federations and to join the greater international community.
As part of the drive to have more African states involved in gaming, MSSA is now lending assistance to Botswana, and on Wednesday, 10 May 2017, MSSA met with the driving force of gaming in Botswana, being Tiro Tirelo and Angel Ayman Setombeko IV.
Tiro and Angel have worked tirelessly, at personal cost, to get gaming accredited as a sport in Botswana and already have achieved much.
It is now only a matter of time before Botswana enters the greater international family as a full member.
