b.) Target the proposal at the executive arms of government - though we're
not sure how practical this is
c.) Removal of the clause that refers to entities with state relations - so
that it only affects entities directly owned by the state and the state
itself rather than those who provide it services

Did you do research to ask number of ip address owned by executive arms of
the government the Afrinic gave to them in Africa which shall be denied?

How you will different the executive and other government branch and how
you will know if the executive does not have the satelite internet and how
you will stop the exective from using the 3G and 4G internet on the phone?

How will the bad policy stop government from getting internet for itself
from other providers who are private and not shuts or from having its own
internet using IP address it has already.

The other day i see in Afrinic email no ip address for version 4 as it is
finishing and the IPv6 is many ip address and the government might not even
come to apply.

The Cameroon government block internet and i am sure they will unblock
eventually after dialog and political issue resolved.

The government can even block many website like other countries below if we
the Afrinic people think we can use the Afrinic power of the bad policy to
deny the IP address to them.

You see like this countries, the people there will have just a little
internet access as other websites will be blocked.

The freedom of the internet will is not easy and the Afrinic can not make
it even more worst.
