Chinese mining firm fined for Starlink use


A Chinese mining company has been sentenced and fined for using American internet service provider Starlink in Guruve.

Starlink, which is owned by billionaire Elon Musk, is making inroads in Africa, with countries like Zambia, Malawi, and Mozambique having approved its usage. However, Zimbabwe has not yet granted Starlink a license to operate.

Despite this, some people have been selling Starlink internet kits locally. Last year, there was an uproar online after ZANU-PF spokesperson Chris Mutsvangwa’s son Neville announced on Facebook that he is selling Starlink kits.

Last year, ICT Postal and Courier Services Minister Tatenda Mavetera said Starlink is yet to pay application fees to the Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (POTRAZ) for it to operate in the country.
