er sorry I'm trying to understand why this needs to be a policy...
Unless Universities in Africa are structured very differently from
those in Europe they should be end users as they manage their networks
centrally, they could of course decide to become LIRs if they have a
need to provide IP address to 3rd parties (like on campus business
parks) but the general case would appear to be treating them as end

There is even a case for the appropriate NREN(s) to become LIRs and
then provide resources to their constituent universites but that could
be seen as a restrictive move.
