Thank you for reporting this problem.  It turned out to be a technical problem with many links on the web site, where a page on www.afrinic.net links to a page on afrinic.net (without the “www”), or vice versa.  We are dealing with it.

I think it’s good that Afrinic’s comms staff tries to keep the Wikipedia page up to date.  The small amount of time taken by that activity does not detract from improvement of the Afrinic web site.
