An African cargo airline has pledged to introduce commercial drones as soon as laws and clearance are in place. Astral Aviation, a Kenya-based cargo carrier, is investing $500,000 to start operations as early as next year. Sanjeev Gadhia, CEO, is planning to develop a drone airport for goods such as medicines and aid in remote locations. Kenya is the second country in the region to regulate the use of UAVs, after Rwanda.  The government has bought a state-of-the-art military drone  from the US to help it combat problems such as terrorism and poaching.
