Dear Community,

Our goodwill advocates have sighted an email message from the recently appointed and current NomCom chair to his favorite private mailing list in South Africa soliciting applications from the country in question.

As a community, we have a few questions to ensure fairness in terms of recruitment of people based on merit and most importantly diversity.

1. Would the NomCom please share announcements equally well across other African countries to the same extent as the NomCom chair is doing for specifically South Africa?

2. Is this a personal act or was this done in his capacity as the NomCom chair where utmost objective neutrality is expected.

3. The said message asks for more South African representation even though it indicates SA already has a seat.

Does this show some level of bias from the chairman of NomCom.

4. The said email indicates that the best way to influence the organization (meaning AfriNIC) is by getting involved and appeals for people on the said list to do so.

This shows intent of bias focused on a specific country with aim of control while development is totally forgotten.
