Redi Tlhabi: Knott-Craig will be remembered for trying to ambush a small player

The repercussions that businessman Alan Knott-Craig might face after Nkosana Makate's Constitutional Court victory remain unclear.

The Vodacom 'Please Call Me' inventor insisted that the idea was his, and Vodacom had implemented it without compensating him.

702/Cape Talk's Redi Tlhabi responded to a caller who expressed the need for Knott-Craig to account for what he has done.

Listen to the conversation below:

It brings into focus the small man versus the big man. It's in everyone's interest to enterprise black South Africans to thrive.

Redi Tlhabi

To be insular and self-serving is not going to help your business in the long run. Why would you want to alienate that creativity, that innovation?

Redi Tlhabi

The level of his determination and the effort he put into what must have been a gruelling fight. The easiest thing would have been to back off. That tenacity persuaded me.

Redi Tlhabi

Alan Knott-Craig, with all this brilliance and success, will be remembered for trying to ambush a small player.

Redi Tlhabi

The behaviour of the big player is appalling because you have already your mark as a former Vodacom boss. How much more do you want?
