This is not about Alan. Its obvious the CEO will alway relocate to .mu
though he or she would never represent the Indian Ocean subregion.

What we need to limit is the number of folk from the same country as the
CEO to 1 at any given rotation.

Its valid since the CEO always becomes a full time director of the board.

There should be a country limit of 1 so that per subregion 2 different
countries can have the total of 2 folk.

Diversity as other countries also have experienced folk to serve not just a
few common countries year after year.

For East Africa subregion, it would be great to also have experienced folk
from Burundi or Rwanda next round just like coutries like Kenya Uganda and
Tanzania who have had the opportunity to serve.
