President Mnangagwa says he has "approved the licensing of Starlink by POTRAZ to provide advanced internet and related digital processing services in Zimbabwe" through its sole and exclusive local partner IMC Communications which is owned by businessman Wicknell Chivayo.

Starlink, a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite operator owned by SpaceX and spearheaded by prominent billionaire Elon Musk, will provide advanced internet and digital services in Zimbabwe through its exclusive local partner, IMC Communications (Pvt) Ltd.

The introduction of Starlink into Zimbabwe's digital telecommunications sector is poised to bring high-speed, low-cost LEO internet infrastructure across the nation, with a particular focus on rural areas.
