Zambia to become the second SADC nation to launch a satellite – Mutati
Zambia’s Minister of Science and Technology Felix Mutati has expressed displeasure at the delay to launch the satellite despite having all the necessary expertise. Mutati says the new dawn government’s ambition is to ensure that Zambia becomes the second SADC nation to launch a satellite.
Mutati was speaking when he toured the Ground Receiving Station under the National Remote Sensing Centre. National Remote Sensing Centre director Dr Faustin Banda told Mutati that most of the infrastructure works at the facility, which would house the receivers for the satellite, had been completed.
