Zimbabwe is going to orbit, finance minister Mthuli Ncube announced as he unveiled his 2020 national budget in Parliament, boycotted by opposition MPs.

"The budget has set aside resources for research and development programmes, including the launch of a space satellite. I repeat, including the launch of a space satellite," Ncube announced.

Research and development were "critical for Zimbabwe's social economic transformation and competitiveness, as the country strives to attain Vision 2030", he said, and Zimbabwe had to "innovate in developing new services or products, and also advance the value addition strategy."
