There is a conflict of interest if a Board member of Afrinic Ltd 
ratifies a proposal which he/she has written.  It is not clear-cut in 
a case where the Board member participates in the discussions about a 
proposal.  That case is not an issue if a participant works for a 
prestigious company as those entities usually have a code of ethics 
for its directors and employees.
