May be:

"AfriNIC Staff will use any communication tools at their discretion to 
contact those who have not answered or those whose email has bounced back."
There are several issues.
1- (Legal please help). In most African countries' legal frameworks, 
there is no provision about email. The consequence is that some people 
in ORGs tell you to call, to send them a fax or a mail for them to take
