Huawei's 5G Hits Speed Bump in Kenya

 Wee Tracker, an African research and media company, posted on 5 January 2021 an article titled "For Huawei, A Botched Deal with Safaricom Could Be Fatal."

Kenya's Safaricom, the largest telecommunications company in East Africa, has "put on hold" its plan for China's Huawei to upgrade its equipment to 5G.  The reasons for the setback are not clear, but it could herald more trouble for Huawei's sales in Africa.  In the meantime, some African countries are turning to Nokia and Ericsson to upgrade to 5G.
