I really agree with you. Let us not forget that the only RIR we have in our region is AFRINIC. Let us try to protect it no matter how. I think nobody owns AFRINIC, but the way we are fighting looks like AFRINIC is person who has faulted and want to push it. Let is not forget that when you cut off one of your hands and you roasted it and eat it, you will suffer.

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.

The concerns expressed by TISPA, as well as other concerned parties and especially by AFRINIC's own admission in the news outlet lexpress.mu<http://lexpress.mu>, which is attached to this email, regarding the AFRINIC’s inability to keep providing its core registry functions due to its inability to meet its financial requirements.

I suggest that in order not hold end users, ISPs and any other business's hostage, for the interest of continue service of AFRINIC’s core registry service, we should urgently call for NRO fulfil their responsibility as well as commitment to the global internet to take over AFRINIC’s registration service for the time being, until litigation is settled some time later. (https://www.nro.net/accountability/rir-accountability/joint-rir-stability-fund/)

That way, no end user or business will ever impacted however results come out of litigation.
