@Mukom Akong,
Does AFRINIC have plans to get  an alternative  backup Datacenter incase an
Internet shutdown switch is activated in South Africa?

a) 90% or more of AFRINIC staff is based in Mauritius
b) 80% or more of the tools these staff use every day to work for members
are based in Mauritius
c) A shutdown in Mauritius will mean
       - none of the tools are available
       - no communication can be had with members
       - you won't be able to raise a resource request, fix a problem with
your resources

that's just Mauritius.
Consider an Internet Shutdown in South Africa where AFRINIC Datacenter is
.... i'll let you work out the impact of that.
