Dear Katim,


I’m so sad to learn that you are leaving the ICANN Board. You did a lot to
the ICANN African Community during your term of office as a member of the
Board of directors. I can say that for AFRALO, you were always supportive of
all our initiatives and our activities, and if AFRALO acquired this
visibility and this credibility, it’s party thanks to your help and your
assistance. Thank you Katim!


But you will not leave us: You will continue to lead your own initiative of
holding an ICANN summit on developing countries. AFRALO is preparing the
42nd ICANN meeting, and put on its agenda to participate actively in the
preparation of the summit. So please provide us with your program for Dakar,
and your expectation from AFRALO. We want to be the most supportive of this


Thank you again Katim.

Dear all,

As you probably know now, my application for a second term on the ICANN
board was not accepted by the NomCom, as indicated in its recent
announcement of selections
(http://www.icann.org/en/announcements/announcement-05aug11-en.htm).  So my
term on the board ends this Oct. at the Dakar, Senegal, ICANN meeting.


So let me say a big "Thanks!!" to all of you, the African ICANN community
for your support during my time on the ICANN board.  It's been wonderful
working with all of you, and I hope we continue working to ensure that the
Internet continues to benefit our people, and that we continue to work
actively with the global ICANN community for an Internet that benefits all
of humanity, and not just the privileged few.


I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate NomCom's new
appointees from Africa:  Lanre Ajayi from Nigeria (GNSO Council), and Titi
Akinsanmi from Nigeria (ALAC).  I urge you to provide them all the support
they need to effectively discharge their duties in their new positions.


Congratulations also to our brother Carlton Samuels and the rest of the
NomCom appointees, including Dr.Steve Crocker, our board Chairman. I wish
them all, the board, ICANN, and the entire community all the very best in
the future!

Again, thanks for everything!
