HARARE 11 Jul (ANA) - Zimbabwe's President Emmerson Mnangagwa has launched a space agency to help farmers, mine companies and cartographers, among others.

The ZNGSA was launched alongside two other new organisations aimed at modernising the country, according to the state-owned Herald newspaper.
 
The president is currently campaigning ahead of elections on 30 July - the first since the ousting of President Robert Mugabe last year.
