Panyaza Lesufi calls on the public to boycott Vodacom products if ‘Please Call Me’ inventor is not paid

Gauteng education MEC Panyaza Lesufi and the Please Call Me Movement have called on citizens to boycott Vodacom products and events if the ‘Please Call Me’ inventor Nkosana Makate is not paid.

Lesufi has challenged Vodacom to pay Makate by the end of 31 January 2019.

“Hi @Vodacom, the countdown starts now… Please pay him by 10am, 31st January 2019 or face the wrath of the nation. We are the economy and we can shut it down,” Lesufi posted on Twitter.

Since then the company has served Lesufi with a cease-and-desist order to stop him from making “false and defamatory comments of, and concerning” on this matter.

 

 

Lesufi hit back at the telecommunications company with a bold reply:

“Bring it on @Vodacom! I am NOT easily intimidated. You can’t bully me or silence my support to the weak and vulnerable. This is a democratic country and I have the right to express my views without fear. The apartheid regime detained me without trial. I am not scared!” he posted on Twitter.

This arises after Vodacom announced they had reached an agreement with Makate and would pay him for his invention, but Makate took to social media rejecting the offer.
