Friday February 12 was a dark day for chess players as news trickled in of the passing on of Owino Magana. It was as if time had stood still, for barely a month ago, we had a brief phone conversation and I later gathered he had spoken to quite a number of chess players this year.
Friday, 12 February 2016, was a sad day for Kenya’s chess community as news of Ben Magana’s elder brother Owino Magana’s death was announced by John Mukabi via SMS and on Facebook.
