I personally have no objection if some other entity wants to come in and
fully take over all of the duties of AFRINIC, e.g. if that other entity
thinks that it can do a better job.

The problem I have with this apparent current attempt to do that is that
it is clearly not based on anything which is even remotely democratic.

I've said it before and I'll say it again... It appears from where I am
sitting that this is just an attempt at a hostile takeover by one company
and one guy. And I think that if it were successful, it would not serve
the interests of even a significant minority of the current AFRINIC dues-
paying members.
