While this might be true, you also can’t trust American manufacturing either, they’re just as bad with backdoors put in by the NSA or some other US gov’t sponsored spying and surveillance program.

this subject, it is curious that Safaricom's partner in the project
is Chinese Telcom giant Huawei.

Americans have reservations, apprehensive/suspicious Huwawei
technology wrt spying. Here is an excerpt

"U.S. House Intelligence Committee chairman Mike
Rogers somewhat
famously said last
year that Huawei's products "cannot be trusted to be free of
foreign state influence and thus pose a security threat to the
United States and to our systems." The committee also released a
report that accused Huawei of all kinds of bad behavior including
bribery, corruption, and immigration violations. Huawei, of
course, denied
the claims."
