Sponsor Dumps Caster Semenya For Reckless #FeesMustFall Comments

caster-semenya-loses-sponsorshipA rich Limpopo businessman has allegedly withdrawn his sponsorship for Caster Semenya after her reckless comments about #FeesMustFall.

Semenya told our sister publication Sowetan yesterday that #FeesMustFall is a waste of time.

“This #FeesMustFall thing, I don’t want to be like I’m judgmental… but for me it is quite disturbing because, at the end of the day, when you go out there and you skip classes and do all those crazy stuff people are doing, you’re wasting your time,” said Semenya.

Our sources who are close to the media shy businessman told Eye News that the businessman was furious after reading the article in the Sowetan.

“He is very angry because he didn’t expect such comments from someone who comes from poor background. He was there when Caster had nothing and supported her until she got to the top. Now that she has money she has forgotten where she comes from,” said a source who didn’t want to be named.

The same source told us that the generous businessman is also paying universities fees for 10 University of Limpopo students. He is helping the poor because he knows how it feels like to be poor.

Attempts to get a comment from Semenya were unsuccessful.
