Festive Season Message from Council Chairperson - Mr M Skosana
Moses Mosweu the guy with magic hands!!!
Moses Mosweu the guy with magic hands!!!
His Love for chess started at the age of 14 years but little did he know that the very same sport will take him to greater heights later on in his life. Today Moses Mosweu, a Civil Engineering student at Tshwane South TVET College (TSC), masters chess professionally. Recently he was nominated to represent the whole TSC at the tournament. This comes after Moses was entered into the College Sports Arts and Culture SA National Summer Games - COSACSA, by Isaiah Samuel Reabetswe Thulare who is also a student and a SRC member at TSC. Thulare discovered Moses’ talent whilst he (Moses) was playing during break intervals at the College with fellow students. At the COSACSA Games which were held at Port Elizabeth from 1 – 7 October 2016, Mosweu played against Free State, Eastern Cape, Kwa - Zulu Natal and Mpumalanga & Gauteng provinces. He played in Board One which is for strong players which earned him position one. Moses also formed part of the team that contested in the very same Board One they collectively scooped position three which earned the group a Bronze medal.
When asked about chess as his calling Moses said that to him it’s a career because not only does he play it but has also gone professional as Chess coach. He has also extended his love for the sport through social responsibility initiatives which he does through coaching TUT (Tshwane University of Technology) chess club, Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University (formerly known as Medical University of South Africa) chess club and Lynwood Ridge Primary in Chess. This comes after Moses was trained at a Joburg facility by a well experienced Chess Player who is a professional in the game of chess. He holds two certificates one in Beginners Chess Teachers Training Workshop as well as an Advanced Chess Course all of which he completed in 2015. Completing the courses was not easy because Moses had to play, and win chess games in order to qualify in earning points as well as certificates. When asked as to what keeps him going he said that in he loves sharing his skill with other youngsters like himself. He also mentioned the fact that he would like to inspire more youth through the sport. We wish Moses the best in all his endeavours.
