#PleaseCallMe Movement will not stop until Vodacom pays Makate
The #PleaseCallMe Movement says it will not stop supporting Nkosana Makate, The Please Call Me service inventor, who invented it when he worked for Vodacom 18 years ago.
At a press conference on Wednesday, supporters of Makate said they will not back down from shutting down the Vodacom head offices in Midrand on Thursday.
In his capacity of as an activist supporting Makate, Panyaza Lesufi says their argument is very clear, the court has ruled that Vodacom must resolve the matter by 10am on Thursday.
If they don't resolve the matter, unfortunately, we are giving South Africans a chance to decide as to how they respond to this brand.Panyaza Lesufi, #PleaseCallMe Movement
We are not encouraging people to be violent, we are not even calling for people to disrupt or destroy property or loot. Our argument is to say resolve the impasse. If the impasse is resolved by 10, the better if it is not, then we just have to find a way of pressurising Vodacom to resolve the matter.Panyaza Lesufi, #PleaseCallMe Movement
He adds that by Vodacom taking a decision not to open its stores on Thursday, the movement can claim victory "without even raising a finger".
Because Vodacom has already sent a communique to all its institutions that it is not going to be operating tomorrow which was a protest action. So in the absence of that protest action, there will be no need because Vodacom has already said that they are closing all the shops.Panyaza Lesufi, #PleaseCallMe Movement
The committee met today to formulate a rolling programme of action that will ensure that Vodacom comes to negotiate and resolve the matter.Panyaza Lesufi, #PleaseCallMe Movement
