The policy is accessible from

Last paragraph of section 2:  "This policy will take effect at the first
AfriNIC Public Policy Meeting following the ratification by the AfriNIC
Board of Directors."

Second paragraph of section 4:  "[...] The Working Group Chairs will be
chosen by the AfriNIC community during the Public Policy Meeting [...]"

Third paragraph of section 4:  "As a special case for the two Working
Group Chairs appointed when this policy first takes effect, one of the
Chairs will be appointed for a two-year term, and the other Chair will
be appointed for a one-year term."

Reading those together, it seems clear enough to me that the
co-chairs should be chosen by the community during the first public
policy meeting after ratification by the Board.
