> Could we be lead to assume that you do not have enough time to serve Afrinic.  We do totally understand that Afrinic is purely voluntary and if your primary assignments have become too demanding, mechanisms of relieving the workload do exist.
> I’m sure chair is fully aware of these so we do not have to elaborate.

Not at all – in anyone’s time on this earth, sometimes extremely abnormal situations crop up and things happen.  It’s called exigent circumstances.

Please rest assured that a lot of work has gone in since Tunis into ensuring that the information that is provided to the community is accurate and a fair representation.  I would rather such information was provided slightly delayed than contained inaccuracies or disputed pointed, and as a result, the work has taken a significant amount of time, due to the care and thoroughness applied.

> The above in a way is in contradiction to your pre-ceeding statement which referred to conflicting priorities.

Again, not at all, the work that has gone in started the day that Tunis ended.  A substantial amount of work was put in during this time.

Lastly, Badru, you make reference to 3 days instead of 14 days.  I point out that the notice of the SGMM was published on the 20th of November 2014, for an SGMM that is scheduled for the 3rd of December.  By my calculations, 3 days would mean that the SGMM is on the 23rd of November, so you seem to have misplaced 11 days.  Hence, while you refer to a section in the bylaws that references ANNUAL general meetings, rather that SPECIAL general meetings, if you choose to conflate the two (and there is reason within the companies act why you should not do that), even under these circumstances the timelines have been met.

> My reference to the 3 days was to the information provided by Chair in the earlier email.  However once again this is subjective based on ones paradigm.

You made reference to article 12.2 of by the bylaws.  The only requirement under 12.2 of the bylaws is to publish the SGMM agenda, and this was met, therefore your statement was inaccurate.
