Suspended Botswana Karate Association (BOKA) secretary-general, Othusitse Tshepang Dick has shunned a disciplinary hearing that was scheduled for Monday this week.

According to a statement authored by disciplinary commission chairperson, Jerry Ditlhong, the purpose of the hearing was to address specific concerns and allegations that have been brought against Dick, as stated in the suspension letter.

However, Dick told MmegiSport he was surprised to receive communication from Ditlhong instead of Philip Setiko, who was the chairperson of the disciplinary commission. Dick said it was also wrong for the disciplinary commission to request a Botswana National Sport Commission (BNSC) employee to serve him with the letter. “In what capacity is he calling and texting the BOKA secretary-general? The secretary-general sits in the executive committee which appoints the disciplinary commission. So I am not aware of him and I do not remember his name being brought forth for his consideration.
