Created by whom? I don't support any personal attack, not even thinking of
supporting racial ones. This has no place in this community.

However, shall we keep quite and see how Africa is ripped off its resources
just because some are shouting that this is discriminatory, etc.?

The way I see some of the contributions here is that AFRINIC staff doesn't
have the competency and integrity to carry out reviews on the use of

Resources are given out for the advancement of the Internet and for
socio-economic development in Africa. So, why oppose checks for the
custodians of the IP resources allocated to Africa to check that these are
used for the purpose they have been allocated to us?
