I personally look forward to the way where we shall not need to remind anyone of delays or be given an excuse or apologies for everything...........

Its called ACCOUNTABILITY.  And in management we call it a culture of accountability.  

So Noah what you and all the community are looking for is a move away from a culture of excuses and blame to a culture of real accountability.  

And we all know that at the end of the day you cannot talk or write yourself out of a poor performance situation but you have to behave yourself out of it.

The sad thing about this is that we have a passionate and dedicated workforce being let down by the top.   We can create all manners of documents and policies but it takes people to deliver and excecute.  

The answer is not getting the policies and documents right the answer is getting the people right.  

One thing I know having worked with them the team in Mauritius is RIGHT.  

What I’m not sure about is the rest but will leave to deduction.

Hi All,

Firstly, let me state my apologies for my silence of late, due to circumstances beyond my control I have been largely out of contact for the purposes of AfriNIC business for the better part of 2 months.  It is important to note that the terms of reference require that the audit committee act unanimously, and this could not happen over this period, hence certain delays, which again, I apologise for.

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.

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.
