Labour and components for Sunsat (SO-35) cost around 11 million 
South African rand (or 2 million USD at the time).  The launch was 
sponsored by NASA in exchange for payloads that were flown.

For Sumbandila (SO-67) it was 12 million ZAR (1.7 million USD).  The 
launch was financed by our Department of Science and Technology.
