Mukonitronics loses patent case
Published: 22 February 2018
A LOCAL electrical and electronics engineer, Lovemore Mukono, has lost a case against a company reproducing a gadget that he designed after he had registered the patent under a trust.

In a long running legal dispute, Mukono, through his company Mukonitronics and the Mukono Family Trust, initially sought to bar seven electrical engineering firms from reproducing versions of surge protectors he invented. He was also demanding 50 percent of all profits made by the firms from the counterfeits since 2009.

He, however, withdrew his claims against six of the companies except Karpeg Investments, which trades as Kadir & Sons.
