House Chairperson, I move without notice:
That the House -
1) notes that Cape Town resident Kenny Solomon has become South Africa's first chess grandmaster;
2) further notes that Solomon, at age 32, has achieved a rating of 2600 points, which is more than the 2 500 points required to be declared a grandmaster;
3) recognises that Solomon, who started playing chess when he was 13, is only the second chess player from Sub-Saharan Africa ever to achieve this accolade; and
4) congratulates Solomon on this outstanding achievement and wishes him well in his future endeavours.
