Zimbabwe has officially licensed Elon Musk’s Starlink to provide satellite internet services, becoming the eighth African country to do so. President Emmerson Mnangagwa announced the partnership with local company IMC Communications, owned by his associate Wicknell Chivayo. This move aims to revolutionize Zimbabwe’s digital landscape by offering high-speed, low-cost internet, particularly benefiting rural areas. Economist Stevenson Dlamini highlighted the potential cost challenges but emphasized the long-term benefits for schools, hospitals, and other public facilities.
