I understand that one of the signatories required by AfriNIC to manage 
certain reserves is that of a CFO. Who in the company plays that role 
and provides that signature?

Personally - I've always assumed that role was played by Patrisse.

(If it looks like a CFO and acts like a CFO (etc) - it probably is a CFO)
