Vo­da­com’s neme­sis is the gen­tle Nkosana Makate, who pur­sued the mo­bile gi­ant all the way to the Con­sti­tu­tional Court to get his share of the for­tune made through the suc­cess of the Please Call Me cell­phone con­cept. He in­vented it as a way of en­sur­ing his girl­friend, Re­becca (now his wife), could get him to call when she was a poor stu­dent. She’s a doc­tor now.
