NAIROBI,  20-11-2018. A young innovator has vowed to sue giant telecommunication company Safaricom over what he terms "breach" of his innovative idea.

Denis Ireru Mbarire, a CPA student at KCA University says that Safaricom may take over an idea he proposed to them without his consent after the firm briefly introduced the service under the name Auto Okoa before stopping it after a fortnight.

According to Ireri, his idea, "Talk Mo" is the same idea that safaricom used in early September to launch the Auto Okoa service which the company stopped after we sent them a letter indicating that I had copyright tho the idea.

“I sent a letter to Safaricom explaining the More talk idea which is a service that advances customers an ‘Okoa Jahazi’ debt without disconnecting one’s call in the event your air time is depleted and on 10th August, just a day after I had obtained copyright I submitted it on the ‘zindua’ platform. They later told me that they had similar ideas only to launch it with a different name,” Ireru narrated during a press conference in Nairobi today.

Ireri said that he is prepared to battle Safaricom in court if the company goes ahead to use the service without his consent noting that the firm has refused to respond to a letter from his lawyers.

“I will be going to court in 14 days time if the company fails to respect my innovation and uses my idea,” He added.

According to KCA University students’ association president Isaac Wambua, The association will not relent in calling for justice to the student. “Even if the courts delay in serving justice, we will be steadfast and we must all rise and defend the rights of everybody. Justice delayed is justice denied so we are ready to go to Safaricam Headquarters and camp there until we find justice for Ireri,”  Wambua  said

    Safaricom cannot misuse us through the airtime, data bundles and go ahead to molest us through our innovative ideas.The power of the comrades is strong than safaricom. Justice must be served with immediate effect failure to which the consequences are better imagined than experienced. #JusticeForOurComrade

    We can not allow we will not allow we can never allow,its either they act or we react ,comrades ideas cannot be used for the benefit of others ,we are giving safaricom an ultimatum of 24 hours failure to which we are going to mobilize all comrades from all recognized institutions to deal with this act .
