The funeral scheme for the Botswana Karate Association (BOKA) has torched fierce exchanges between members of the current and past committees, as the status of the initiative remains unclear.

Former BOKA vice president (administration), Lere Basupang now treasurer, has weighed in the raging exchange, saying the scheme is still at consultation level.

Basupang told Mmegi Sport yesterday that BOKA held a meeting with instructors and managers in July 2014. She said the aim of the meeting was to share the committee’s implementation plan and they wanted the affiliates’ buy-in. She said the funeral scheme and licence books were part of the items discussed. She said the scheme was meant to benefit karatekas, but the committee had not concluded the process because they were to agree on how the scheme would operate.
