Hi Benjamin,


Let me explain how I see this from my perspective.

I’ve not spoken with anyone, apart from the public emails in the list, about my policy proposals. I usually don’t do. They come from my understanding of what is good for the community.
I even don’t ask support in private to anyone. I always do in the list only.
So I doubt my policy is in any way related to the personal interest of anyone (person or institution), and if this is the case, I’m not aware of that.
I would prefer you call me “citizen of the world”, is how I see my self. I was born in Barcelona, but I’m not nationalist or anything like that. One of my life goals is to help everyone, regardless of its citizenship or residence, contributing to the community as much as I can.
Because when I was born, we had a dictatorial regime in Spain, it was forbidden to teach Catalonian in the school or even to speak it in public. That’s probably the reason I learnt to have my own view on everything and not be influenced by anyone.
For that same reason, I’m happy to engage with everybody in discussing any of my ideas (for the sake of this conversation, policy proposals), but in an educated way, and far away from false accusations, ad hominems, or anything similar. As much as I’m harashed, as much I will keep going with my views at least while I’ve a drop of blood in my body, and I plan to live at least 100 years more.

Now, I will suggest the chairs, and the responsibles of this meeting, that in order to keep the order and code of conduct, as it seems that you have done this several times, *unlesss you probe what you’re saying*, you aren’t allowed to keep participating for a few weeks or months, so we can have peace and a civilized meeting.

Dear Community,

I have arrived in Kampala this yesterday and the intelligence I have gathered since then is so alarming that I have decided to send this email to call on my fellow Nigerians (not all) and brother Ugandans  (not all) conscience to put Africa first. To put the interest of this community first so that we keep our Internet Resources for the development of Africa and for the future generation. 

>From the intelligence I have gathered, two groups are working tirelessly to hijack AFRINIC resources. The obvious consequences are the close down of AFRINIC and the appropriation of the Internet Resources of our region. If these happen, it implies that whenever an organization in Africa needs IPv4, IPv6 or ASN, it has to get it in the black markets where those resources would be very expensive perhaps not affordable too or to go to RIPE or ARIN. The two groups are, on one side, white South African led by Mr. Andrew Alston of Liquid Telecom with their allies Mark Elkins and Owen Delong, and on the other side, Lu with his Foundation from China.


The British/South Africa Mark Elkins, the candidate of election, wants to become the co-chair of PDWG. His mission as co-chair is to push for the policy “IPv4 Inter-RIR Resource Transfers (Comprehensive Scope)” proposed by Spanish or Latino Jordi Palet Martinez. The issue with this policy is clear. There is no more IPv4 in the other registry, only AFRINIC has IPv4 in its pool. The policy of Jordy has the hidden agenda is to enable the South African (not all of them) mafia to ransack the AFRINIC. It is not a secret that Mark Elkins was one of those who oppose the creation of AFRINIC. No wonder why his acolyte Owen Delong always defends him even if his is blatantly wrong. What is interesting yesterday was Owen with the help of some Ugandans he recruited some boys and girls to come and vote for Mark Elkins and to support of oppose policies. They were brought by Owen himself who was instructing the AFRINIC registration desk in Sheraton Hotel to register them. When they were asked about what they are coming to do, they said they are coming to vote for IPv4. I personally witnessed this. 

For my own brothers Nigerians, three of them were sponsored by Lu Heng and his foundation for the post of the co-chair of PDWG. Moreover, the Chinese Lu Heng and his foundation have brought 30 participants or so through the coordination of Daniel Yakmut. Larus Cloud Service, the mother organization of Larus Foundation, has been allocated IPv4 address from AFRINIC. The fact is, Lurus Cloud is not using those IPv4 addresses located to him for the purpose of which the got them. Moreover, the reasons provided when he applied for those resources were lies. The instruction given to those sponsored are to 
1 - to support the “IPv4 Inter-RIR Resource Transfers (Comprehensive Scope)” by Jordi Palet Martinez because they want to legalize their wrongdoing with the resources taken from AFRINIC.
2 - to oppose the “Internet Number Resources review by AFRINIC” by Arnaud Amelina and CO because this policy will expose them. 
3 - to vote for Mark Elkins. The other three Nigerians have been used to split vote of the other candidate. 


As for the Moses Serugo, his case is pitiful and detrimental to this community. As a novice in this community he is sponsored by Lu Heng and foundation. According to my intelligence, he commented only once on PDP mailing list and attended only once the face to face meeting. He confessed that he does not what he is going for as co-chair of PDWG but what matters for him is the possibility to travel outside of Uganda. Regardless of the call to dissuade him to step down so that he can be groomed maybe for the next election and that the issues at hand are beyond his capability to deal with, he declined knowing that he has the upper hand over the other candidate because he is recruiting University of Makerere student to vote for him.  I don’t blame him because according my intelligence, the rules governing the selection of the co-chair has been diluted for novice like him to stand to election. BUT HE SHOULD REMEMBER THAT THIS COMMUNITY DOES NOT FORGIVE AND DOES NOT FORGET.

Dear community,  I have just received some fresh intelligence, I am going to authenticate them before I share them with you.
