Kitumbua Kimeingia Mchanga
According to the outcome of the case that was filed by Mbonde in February last year, Babu Tale and his brother Iddi were ordered to pay a fine of Sh11 million for using recorded religious video clips without the knowledge of the Sheikh.
The two have been accused of using his recorded religious video clips for business purposes without his consent or approval.
According to the religious leader, he had an agreement with Tip Top Company to use his work for domestic use, but Babu Tale and his company disregarded the rules of engagement and made money out of it.
The Court ruled that Tip Top had violated the agreement and hence awarded the Sheikh the hefty sum as compensation.
However, to date, they have not been able to pay. The court also ruled that in the event Tip Top fails to pay, then its property would be auctioned to get the money.
And if the company has no property, then its directors in this case Babu Tale and Iddi Tale, would be sentenced to jail as per the Tanzanian law. Babu Tale has not responded yet.
