Those off-shore offices still need IP space and are critical to the functioning of the organizations in question.  Then we have the issues of points of presence internationally, some of which can be pretty large, which include routers, switches, and potentially servers which are directly related to the functioning of the network on the African continent.

1.	It’s a pain to have to manage relationships for your global company’s satellite offices with 4 RIRs that aren’t in your timezone.
2.	Most of them have no space left.
