Dear Paul,
I am surprised by this. Why would you think it is in anyone's interest for
AFRINIC to close shop. I can't imagine that. AFRINIC has come to stay like
any of the other RIRs. Mistakes might have been made who knows ? but am
sure it's not the end of the world. Things can still be corrected and we
end up with a win-win.
