I might go back to court - Vodacom 'Please Call Me' inventor Nkosana Makate
For years now “Please Call Me” inventor Nkosana Makate has been battling Vodacom - his former employer - about the intellectual property of the service.
Makate denies claims by Vodacom that it paid him a settlement, as per a court order.
A decision on reasonable compensation payable to Mr. Makate, based on the Con Court Order, was recently made by Vodacom Group CEO. This decision has been communicated to Mr. Makate and his attorneys. Claims that Vodacom is disrespecting decision of courts is false & ill-informed.— Vodacom (@Vodacom) January 12, 2019
