This is a staggering example of just how drones could be used in Africa to enable great technological progress. I have so many ideas as to how they could be used more effectively. What this article fails to note is that drones could be used to carry people. I've long had the idea that drones could be used as ambulances. I've also thought that eventually all the delivery men on motorcycles could be replaced by drones in African cities. It's just shocking how many delivery drivers are killed or crippled every year.
It's quite unfortunate that only the Rwandan and Malawian governments are the only ones truly pursuing the use of drones. As we all know too well African governments are notoriously uninterested in pursuing technological development especially if it threatens their monopolies. I do think that Magufuli's government will pursue technology because It's bringing so much investment into the country.Tanzania has also become increasingly investment friendly.
