Nii -

I do not see your response as a proposal, instead an information that you
are supplying as to who and what will be done from your own perspective and

While all of af* may be mandated to promote development of ICT and free
expression as you said, there should not be doors closed on any new
initiative and 'dot.africa' is one such intiative we have started long
before af* that promotes the same.   We intend to pursue it as is, give that
af* do not want to work with us.

Finally, please note that 'support.dotafrica at gmail.com is associated with
the dot.africa initiative that we have launched and I am not sure why it
should be referred as 'foreign'.

Thank you.
