Nkosana Makate, a former Vodacom employee invented ‘Please Call Me’ service 20 years ago claims he was never compensated over his intellectual property and has been in a long legal battle ever since.
According to OkayAfrica,
Vodacom is currently putting a deal together and has confirmed that Makate’s funds will be transferred as soon as the company has received his bank account details.
Lobby groups and the ruling African National Congress (ANC) party along with other politicians urge Vodacom to pay Makate his dues and ‘do the right thing.’
South Africans took to Twitter in support of Nkosana Makate with #BoycottVodacom
