Huawei employees helped some African governments spy on their opponents


Huawei employees allegedly engaged in espionage activities at the request of the governments of Uganda and Zambia. They wanted to monitor the communications of political opponents, which they could not do themselves by their own means. The executives of the company in China, however, have not been made aware of these actions.

Another case that will degrade the image of the company and that will give grain to grind to Donald Trump and his administration. According to a Wall Street Journal survey, Huawei employees were intercepting messages on behalf of two governments, those of Uganda and Zambia, for the purpose of spy on political opponents.
