Sunday I believe AFRINIC hostmasters and management should answer this

assist to get the answers.

AFRINIC hostmasters make recommendations to AFRINIC management with respect
to allocations greater than /17. Again what recommendation did the
hostmasters make to management?
Who constitute and what criteria is used to approve such huge allocations?
