All policies for this service region are developed by the Internet 
community following three principles: openness, transparency and 
fairness. The Internet community initiates and discusses the 
proposals. If consensus is reached on the draft policy, it is 
recommended to the AfriNIC Board of Directors for adoption as a policy.

GPP-IPv4-2011 was discussed in all five regions.  Philip Smith did 
the work to get the proposal approved as a policy (AFPUB-2011-v4-004) 
in this region.  The policy gained agreement and was ratified in May 2012.

I have not seen any objection about the policy not being developed 
according to the three principles mentioned above.  Nobody asked 
where the IP addresses were coming from.  Nobody objected to taking 
the IP addresses.  There were concerned from outside this region 
about whether the distribution was fair.  Nobody argued against that.
