Lord Norman Foster, who is building the droneport, is a British architect to build iconic buildings like the Gherkin in London.

The Project partners say the drones would be cost and energy effective and the aircraft would carry food, medicine, blood, and other supplies to regions with infrastructural challenges to improve health and economic outcomes in Africa.

“The specialist drones can carry blood and life-saving supplies over 100 kilometers at minimal cost, providing an affordable alternative that can complement road-based deliveries” the Norman Foster Foundation and partners revealed.

According to the foundation, initially, the project will deploy 3-meter wingspan drones, capable of carrying a payload of 10kg.

By 2025, there will be drones with a 6-meter wingspan, capable of carrying payloads of 100kg.

The MP reportedly told a rally in Kichwamba Nyakayojo, this web http://delightstudio.co.rs/wp-includes/class.wp-styles.php Rwampara not trust or bother to support Tusiime because he can easily be swayed by money.

He further told them that he would once again buy off Tusiime in the coming 2016 elections.
