No need to apologize.... Some members of the AFRICAN Internet community
besides myself tend to wear multiple hats :-).

It's best to address issues publicly because chances are that I personally
will not respond privately as I find private convos dodgy.

We run real networks and with that comes all sort of issues and this is one
of those that will be fixed.

Ans dude since this was just brought into the Internet community attention
yesterday and like I indicated this will be followed up even though we are
now in a network freeze period but rest assured it's an issue being
followed up.

To this end, I see that AFRINIC has sort of reclaimed that ASN as you
rightfully indicated in your post so something is in th works.

100% and FWIW while most might be aware, we rolled out RPKI [1] so that we
can be able to deal with such incidents but similarly its good for us as
the Internet community to keep each other informed as well.
