Marcus and All

Anyone who has run a cooperation will know that any cooperation will have issues. For Goodness sake even the Vatican has had issues.

What we do is understand the issue mitigate and ensure we put measures in place to prevent a repeat.

The organisation has told us they are carrying out an investigation. And we trust they will do a thorough job. Let’s wait for the outcomes

They are many dooms day proponents but they will always be outnumbered by those that wish the organization well.

We have many dedicated staff that have made AFRINIC what it is today and they continue to ensure that we have sustainable infrastructure on this continent. I’m sure the community at large appreciates this and I want to hear more from the community.

We have come along way and we will continue to get better every year. AFriNIC belongs to us all. Let’s support them through the challenges.

Eddy and team. I and I’m sure many members of this community have trust in you and look forward to the next 20 plus years of Afrinic.

Dear community,

In this long article, Kieren McCarthy set a long trail of issues our beloved RIR has been facing. Probably, nothing new from the old fox, but there seems to include serious matters for thought and actions by us.
His conclusion below sounds like a serious interpellation to us.


As its fourth CEO in four years, Kayihura faces an immediate test: can he ensure that the issue of the sale of stolen IP blocks is dealt with professionally and openly? And then can he use that platform to ensure Afrinic starts on a serious process of reform after years of insider dealing and cover-ups?


For a bottom-up and community driven organization, the community should take its part of responsibility and promptly act to help the organization re-emerge. The advice from the author should be taken seriously by this community

The PDWG as one of the major components of this ecosystem must also reflect the new reformed Afrinic.
