That's indicative of a lack of engagement by other community members. I
had a similar experience in Mauritius.

In my opinion a volunteer with little or no experience should be given a
chance if there is no other suitable candidate, like in the case you
mentioned. Age is not always indicative of experience.

How does Afrinic currently address non-participation of board members
(if it's still happening)?
