The decision to reject the request was taken during a recent Special General Meeting (SGM). The executive committee wanted to request delegates to continue in office until December in order to assist Ministry of Youth, Gender, Sport and Culture Development (MYGSC) and Botswana National Sport Commission (BNSC) to prepare for the formation of a joint school sport body and also to facilitate the resumption of school sport.

According to information reaching Mmegi Sport, the delegates voted against the request by the BISA executive. The delegates called for an AGM instead of a SGM in order to discuss and resolve issues within the association. The suspension of BISA treasurer, Tapiwa Kengaletswe was brought up only to be shot down by the executive as it was not part of the agenda of the SGM. The delegates were also addressed by BNSC and MYGSC.
