Latest on 'Please Call Me' matter

Friday, 2 December 2016

Vodacom is, and has been, committed to engaging in good faith negotiations to determine reasonable compensation for Mr. Kenneth Makate in respect of the “Please Call Me” matter, as determined by the Constitutional Court in its judgment handed down on 26 April 2016. Despite our best efforts and endeavours in good faith, we are extremely disappointed that the negotiations have been put on hold by Mr Makate’s applying to the courts seeking a clarification on the import and meaning of the Constitutional Court Order. Notwithstanding its view that the Court Order is clear and unambiguous, Vodacom has made a number of attempts to resolve the current impasse and remains open to finding a fair solution through a process that will consider various computation methodologies, as opposed to one singular methodology demanded by Mr. Makate, to arrive at a reasonable amount of compensation to finally settle this matter.
