Japan has provided $ 1 million in funding to Kenyan engineers.

The satellite will be used for monitoring agricultural activities and monitoring Kenya’s borders, according to the country’s authorities.

It will be sent to the International Space Station in March, before being put into service about a month later.

With this innovation, Kenya becomes one of about six African countries to have sent satellites into space.
