Eugenia Kula-Ameyaw, an independent board member of Cricket South Africa (CSA), will be investigated by the governing body’s ethics committee after a tweet in which she criticized one of CSA’s sponsors.
After financial services company Momentum announced on Tuesday that it will not extend its one-day cricket sponsorship when the current agreement expires in April 2021, Kula-Ameyaw tweeted: “Momentum forgets that we are investing hundreds of millions in Momentum through our state-owned enterprises and pension funds. I remember asking for their broad-based black economic empowerment certificate on my other board. Just look before you make any irrational decisions. ”
After criticism, she deleted this tweet, but on Wednesday again tweeted critically about Momentum, which will continue to be the sponsor of the Protea women’s team until 2023.
Kula-Ameyaw, head of KSA’s transformation committee, said at the time that “the point is that Momentum gets business from players, supporters, and citizens. I was happy that they funded the women’s team, but it’s not transformation, but marketing. ”
