Your assumptions

a) That person in-charge of redundant site is in another country except
where AFRINIC HQ is.
b) That there's Human Resource redundancy
c) Continuous operation depends at normal capacity

Both assumptions are incorrect.

"Should" != reality
It's probably possible to design for any level of redundancy, IF you can
afford it. AFRINIC last time I checked is a non-profit whose major source
of funding is member fees. Any such costs will be borne by members.
