> Hi Kofi,
> Speaking as myself, my first question will be to ask how writing such a
> quarterly message implies transparency? Perhaps we need to agree on that
> word transparency as it can be relative. Within the context of managing
> resources within this region, i see transparency as AFRINIC staff managing
> resource allocation/assignment based on the active policies and the
> requestor also doing his/her part by following the laid down
> rules/guidelines. Any individual (requester) who then thinks that he/she
> did not experience such service could raise alarm of staff not being
> transparent based on their XYZ action which is against the existing ABC
> I hope you do agree with that view above. I will also encourage you to
> turn some of this thoughts into policy as that is the major way you can see
> the change you desire.
> PS: Speaking as an individual
