"Please Call Me" Inventor Demands Ksh 75 Billion After Rejecting Ksh 354 Million Pay From Vodacom.

A former Vodacom employee by the name Nkosana Makate wants Vodacom company to compensate him with ksh 75 billions for using his "please call me" invention.

According to reports, while working as an employee in Vodacom then, Nkosana Makate shared the idea with his then bosses but was never paid even though his idea was adopted.

He then pursued a case in court demanding compensation. He has been battling with the company for 20 years now and the company in his defence argues that it has not generated any revenue from the please call me service since it is free to the subscribers.

However, Nkosana Makate says in 2019 the service had generated 1.5 trillions to the company since it was launched.

The Vodacom chief executive officer Shameel Joosub later offered Nkosana Ksh 354 million which Nkosana declined terming it so little.

The South African court is soon set to deliberate on the case and rule out whether the Ksh 354 million offered to Nkosana was enough or not.Thank you for reading my work. Keep on sharing and reading the rest of the articles.
