Ooh Yes and that is the strategy with an Inter-RIR transfer policy proposal
which intends to ease some businesses around IPv4 addresses with zero role
for AFRINIC with:

⁃ Source resource holders subject to receiving RIR policies
⁃ No need based justification
⁃ No checking of valid “ right to use“ and no dispute.
⁃ The list is endless

The community caught them and is discovering more and more about the actors
and their intentions and motivation which are 100% not for the best
interests of the AFRICAN region.
