Gentlemen, it seems the institution is still in its growth phase and many governance issues are in the process of being sorted out.  In my view complaining about the past should just inform us on what to avoid repeating. However building trust will take time.

best regards

> 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 fronts.... 

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 schools. 

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 perspective. 

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 there. 

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 ???
