I wish to strongly give my support for this policy and commend the authors of the policy for coming up with a very purposeful policy like this.
You recall the different reported cases of abuses that led to shutting down the Internet in some parts of Africa which is worrisome and calls for great concern to us as a community.
While most African countries are concerned with Internet penetration to the rural community so as to help those communities reach out and have a better socioeconomic lifestyle, some African countries are busy shutting down the Internet for no particular reason such that it affects the basic human rights of freedom of expression.
If we as a community can rise up to come up with this corrective measures to aid the freedom of Internet , we can all live in a better world.
With no intention of endorsing this brand specifically, I wish to call your attention this advert which has gone in my country.
The two minutes video is about a world without the Internet and ability to reach out for help in a lost island.
Let's make the world and by extension the AFRINIC region  a better place by supporting this policy, engaging stakeholders and the community.
Above all, let's make sure the those who abuse this basic human rights are made to be accountable for their actions.
