> Let me clarify.  What I mean is, at various conferences and various
forums, members will be shown how to register for BPKI certificates, they
will taught how to vote, and how to use their vote.

Ok that is clear now.

> This is not telling people how to vote, or who to vote for, its teaching
people HOW to use their voice.  Where is the issue with that?

You can call it teaching people how to use their voice which literally
means teaching them how to vote through influence and all sorts of means.

But my personal concern is that this teaching people how to use their voice
as if they are not intelligent enough to understand what is has it benefited them or rather the community or how will
it??? Explain things don't speak vaguely.

We have seen a lot happening over the years with, mostly more energy being
spent on layer 9 politics and worse of it individuals going to the board
under the pretext of representating the electorate/community yet their
intentions are always selfish.

People are voted onto the board under the umbrella of representating say a
specific region, what does that even mean, is it the actual reality on the
ground and do they always carry the voice of that entire region ????

So with all the voting that has happened year in year out..!

1. Where is AfriNIC in turns of self sustainability considering its
financial reports.

2. Where is AfriNIC in terms of strategic plans going forward.

3. Where is AfriNIC in terms of managing it's coffers and the ever
increasing operational costs.

4. Where is AfriNIC in terms of executing its mandates and lip frogging in
fact the other RIR's seeing we are still larging behind on so many

5. What do you guys do at the board besides politics and staying in
expensive 5* hotels and getting allowances notwithstanding selfish
interests evident with the thirst for being elected to the board year in
year out..

When we look at Internet Development  across the entire continent from West
to East, North to South... Are various internet driven businesses advancing
from an internet growth perspective and are more and more education
institutions advancing research considering how the internet can play a
significant role in that regard. And am talking from NREN's down to primary

Is AfriNIC engaging governments enough in terms of some of this issues
seeing its the custodian of a resource that has helped advance economies
like those in North America and Europe and Asia from a technological

In fact are the current policies driving us to the right direction.

This are issues we need to be concentrating on and not bickering here and

This is the time for accountability ya'all.We need to be accountable and we
need to be honest with ourselves moving forward whatever each individuals
selfish interests are whether personal or business.

What have we been doing and what are we bloody doing ???
