I don't know why you say "of course".
This is my interpretation of bylaws:
6.1 Membership shall be open to:
(i) any Person who is geographically based within, and providing services in the African region, and who is engaged in the use of, or business of providing, open system protocol network services; or
Also in the RSA section 4.
(c) Applicant’s use of the service
The Applicant hereby irrevocably:
(i) Commits itself to using the services solely for the purpose for which it was requested.
If some Resource Member of Afrinic is using 100% of its Afrinic-
assigned resources outside of the region...
*) How will this become known to Afrinic?
There are ways to check where resources are located.
*) What, if anything, will Afrinic do about it?
My understanding is that I make a request to Afrinic for an IPv4 block, I will demonstrate that I'm located in Africa, and as part of the request I need to specify what services I'm going to provide and where. I think staff will not provide the IPv4 block if you say that the services are provided in California. If you are providing false information, you break section 4 of the RSA.
