I can confidently say that , in this community we all want the best for
AFRINIC , at the current moment they are in a financial distress , which I
believe , also stated by Paul , AFRINIC is already struggling with the
registry functionality. Right now , the solution that can bring up
stability and ensure AFRINIC operations are not entirely affected is to
look at the NRO RIR Stability Fund. It was established for situations like
this , so it would be best for NRO to take over for the moment , until
AFRINIC can sort out their financial crisis . If AFRINIC becomes
completely disrupted of their functionality , the community will be also
affected that much.
