To clarify the issues around the minutes of the Board meeting of 11 May 2016:

1. Haitham el Nakhal requested not to chair any part of the meeting because his audio quality was poor.

2. Aminata Garba was disconnected from the meeting due to technical difficulties, before the nominations were discussed.  She neither voted not recused herself, because she was not present at the time.

In both cases, I believe that it was a mistake for the minutes to omit those facts.
