What I did with this:

- got the listings of route[6] objects
- saved into file
- $ egrep -v 'remarks: ' tmp/irr_routes1.txt  | sed -e 's/^source:
RIPE-GRS$/source: AFRINIC/g' -e 's/^mnt-by: SimbaTz-mnt$/mnt-by:
SN-MNT\npassword: ***********\nchanged: frank at simbanet.co.tz/g' >

- and looked for obsolete objects or attributes I wanted to remove -
please do that to avoid copying garbage.

pasted the result into
the "Plain text update" of the web whois interface at AfriNIC.

Now I think the AfriNIC DB is up to date and we'll have to ensure our
upstreams (and their upstreams) are using it.
