Dear Chairman and CEO of AfriNIC,

The Bylaw states in the article 4.2 that “The fees mentioned in Article 4.1 above shall be subject to review from time to time by the Board.” The important. Word   which  I am interested in is REVIEW. The board is supposed to review, yet the Board has unilaterally validated the FEES as it is stated on the website http://www.afrinic.net/en/services/rs/membership-fees. 
The community has not been inform and/or involved in any discussion and suddenly a “Resolution 201604.274 about Set-Up fees”. This is unreasonable because decisions like this ought to be more inclusive   Is AfriNIC  moving away from bottom-up approach to a more  top-down?

This raises some questions
What problem are solving? What options have been evaluated?What is the meaning of the membership fees, which increase with my category If i have to pay allocations fees anytime i request additional resources?Shouldn’t the membership fees be turned to a lower maintenance fees at a lower price?Have we done impact analysis? 
What is the foreseen negative impact on membership and how do we mitigate? (Some may not come for additional allocation as they have to pay allocation fees plus increase in membership fees.. )What is expected  impact on revenue and how we plan to use it?
Thank you,
