Dr. Kasparov, I Presume

I like this photo for the art as well as the personalities. The photo's caption said,

President Jacob Zuma meets Dr. Garry Kasparov, a former World Chess Champion, writer, political activist, widely regarded as the greatest chess player of all time and his wife Dasha Kasparova at his residence, Mahlamba Ndlopfu, in Pretoria. 23 March 2012.

Has Kasparov been awarded an honorary doctorate? It certainly wouldn't surprise me.

The artwork's inscription says,

Thank you, President Zuma, for supporting chess on behalf of the children of South Africa.

Elsewhere we learn that the former World Champion was there to launch the 'Kasparov Foundation' in Africa.
