The Botswana Athletics Association  (BAA) Board has failed to make a decision in the matter that involves two sprinters, Baboloki Thebe and Onkabetse Nkobolo due to time constraints.

It met over the weekend although the matter was on the agenda, a decision could not be taken over the two athletes following allegations of them sneaking out of the camp early this year.  BAA vice president-administration, Oabona Theetso told Sport Monitor that they failed to make a ruling on the matter because the Board meeting dragged beyond two hours time limit in accordance with COVID-19 protocols.

"The investigation report has been released and shared with the Board members. We expect them to look at the report and a decision would be taken virtually next week Friday," he said.
