We’ve got some big news for you; this is the 100th episode of the Techpoint Africa Podcast!!! And of course, we are celebrating. To find out more, listen to today’s podcast.

We loved reminiscing about all the iterations we’ve gone through in the last three years, including doing video. But that’s not all we discussed.

Last week, Business Insider reported that Amazon would be launching in five countries — Belgium, Chile, Colombia, Nigeria, and South Africa. Its expansion in Africa is named Project Fela, supposedly after African music icon and activist, Fela Anikulapo Kuti. But Emmanuel says we should take this with a pinch of salt, an opinion he holds for our second story.

In a nutshell, Uganda has announced that it will be launching a satellite into space in September 2022, a project that has been in the works since 2019.
