Lesufi: Vodacom stop being a bully and resolve the matter
It's been ten years since Nkosana Makate, The Please Call Me service inventor embarked on a journey to fight Vodacom to compensate him for his invention.
Vodacom has made Makate an undisclosed offer but he has rejected it.
And now, Panyaza Lesufi, in his capacity as an activist, has thrown his weight behind Makate asking Vodacom to do the right thing and "stop being a bully".

I thought through my activism I would lend him a helping hand. I have never met him, he is not my friend and I am not doing this for financial interest. I am just on the side of those facing difficulties, lift up a hand and support him.Panyaza Lesufi, Activist
Lesufi says he will not supporting Makate even after Vodacom wrote to him asking him to stop meddling in this matter.
