Then you're a fkn idiot
He gambled and lost. The amount he is claiming is totally ridiculous but the lawyers must have accessed what might have been viable. I wonder what offers have been on the table over the years? Everything about the case seems some what insane!!

This story is getting real old real fast. They're all going to slip up and walk away with zero and their tails between their legs, except Vodacom. In fact their ship has probably sailed already because of the squabbling and sheer greed.

So VC offered 49 mill? Is this fact or speculation?
Because when asked about 10 mill offer they said significantly more. Have not seen the figure of 49 mill confirmed by VC

This guy will still be in debt even after the 49mil settlement. That’s if it even happens.

How does one get to R60mil worth of lawyers fee in 5 years? That's R12 mil a year :unsure:

Lesufi and his merry band will likely turn on these raining men at some point to make sure Makate ends up with some change

Part of the problem is that several teams of lawyers have contractual claims (of varying plausibility) totaling close to 100% of the payout. Its more like an equity share, than actual costs for court appearances.
