The candidate in question has a campaign team purporting to be from Afrinic
elections and is calling Afrinic members all the way from HongKong, asking
members to vote and provide confirmation after voting for your candidate
based on all the WhatsApp screenshot messages that members have shared
across different mailing lists.

It is also public information that Paul Wolner's company [1] originates
significant millions of IPv4 address space allocated to Cloud Innovation
Ltd [2].

See the links below and this is an indication of direct business
relationship and therefore a direct conflict of interest.

Except that the candidate presents a direct conflict of interest.

PS: To paraphrase, honest Abe, “*You can fool some of the people all of
the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all
of the people all of the time*.”
