Digicel sponsors Miss Galaxy Pageant 2021

Joey Mataele, Director for the Miss Galaxy Pageant, said the Tonga Leitis Association (TLA) is always grateful to receive the continuous and generous support from Digicel.

Mataele said this year’s theme ‘I can. You can. We can stop all forms of violence in Tonga’ raises a critical issue that Tonga must continue to address. The recent tragic loss of the President for the TLA was a direct result of unchecked violence that must be curbed.

Kenya Sevens in World Cup disarray

The decision was retaliation for a public protest against unpaid salaries last week during the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series in Paris, when national team players hid the 'Brand Kenya' logo on their shirts.

The sponsorship withdrawal has thrown the cash-strapped Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) into disarray with head coach, Innocent Simiyu being sacked and top officials going into a crisis meeting Friday to seek a new sponsor ahead of next month's World Cup.

Simiyu said it has been "a great honour" to coach Kenya's sevens team.
