Following divided opinions within members of the Botswana Karate Association (BOKA) executive committee over the membership termination, Karate Nomichi spokesperson, Keorapetse Dube has resigned. Dube submitted his resignation letter yesterday to the BOKA president, Mpho Bakwadi.

He indicated that he was not happy with the way the executive committee is handling matters brought forth. “I officially inform you of my immediate resignation from the BOKA executive committee. Nomichi membership has been unfairly terminated on allegations of non-payment of annual affiliation fee for the financial year 2022/2023, but they had dully paid the fee amounting to P2,000 in March 31, 2022 through bank ATM deposit as reflected in BOKA bank statement. The federation also wrote to BOKA in that regard,” he said through the letter.

Dube said the secretary-general, Othusitse Tshepang Dick has been indefinitely suspended from the committee and still being denied justice. He argued that the committee is prone to misleading the general assembly in pursuit of achieving their personal interests.
