As you know the Community draft Proposals and Policies and AFRINIC does not interfere in any case in the process.
In this case the "Anti-Shutdown (AFPUB-2017-GEN-001-DRAFT-01)” is addressing Internet Shutdown and concerns Governments.
There is no policy or proposal that needs to be validated by the AFRINIC Government Working Group as the AfGWG is a closed and dedicated
forum for Governments, Regulators and LEA’s to discuss on opportunities and challenges they are facing with regards to the Internet Development in Africa amongst other.
I hope this clear your question.
