FIDE player card for Arthur Ssegwanyi

(born Mar-12-1988, 31 years old) Uganda

[what is this?]
FIDE Master (2014); International Master (2015).

Ssegwanyi won his IM title when he placed first with 7.5/9, a clear point ahead of the field, at the 2015 Zonal 4.2 held in Kampala in Uganda. That win also qualified him to compete in the World Cup (2015). There the number 125 seed caused a minor stir in the first round by drawing the first game of his match with Anish Giri. However, he lost the second game of the match and was eliminated from the event.

Jul-15-13  YouRang: Well, there's something new. I had never seen a name (or word) beginning with double "s" before.

To pronounce it, do you hold the s-sound a bit longer than normal?

  TheFocus: I'm just glad he doesn't have a couple of clicks in his name.
Jul-15-13  kramputz: I think this name was originally Szegvanyi.Sounds like a Hungarian name. But what is he doing in Uganda?

  Infohunter: When I first saw the name my impression was also that it was Hungarian, albeit with an aberrant spelling. From the first photo on the following page, however, one can tell that this is not so:

Are there any click languages native to Uganda?!

Clicks are popular more to the south of Africa as far as I know. Among those this wonderful language: , spoken in Botswana
