Huawei technicians may have helped African governments spy on opponents

An investigation by The Washington Post claims Huawei technicians helped African governments spy on domestic political opponents. According to the report, Huawei employees helped authorities in Uganda intercept encrypted messages and allowed police in Zambia to locate opposition bloggers. Such claims could validate the Trump administration’s concerns about the use of Huawei technology in the US, but Huawei told The Washington Post it has “never been engaged in ‘hacking’ activities.”
