Did China Bug the Africa Union Headquarters?

The Diplomat published on 31 January 2018 an article titled "If China Bugged the AU Headquarters, What African Countries Should be Worried?" by Shannon Tiezzi, editor of the US-based publication.

The French paper Le Monde broke a story that China, which financed and constructed the African Union headquarters and its computer network in Addis Ababa, has been methodically transferring sensitive cyber information from the headquarters to Beijing. Although China strongly denied the account, the author asks if there might be similar issues at Chinese built and financed structures elsewhere in Africa.
