I completely agree.

On the other hand there’s the wider public. This must be managed prudently, 
wisely and with urgency. In cases like this there are clear guidelines and best 
practices to follow. Some suggestions below:-

1. Issue a press release urgently stating the facts and assuring the accuser(s) 
and the public at large that action is being taken and to urge patience.

2. Quickly (in the next two days max) constitute an internal team (NomComm?) 
that will have the mandate to appoint an independent third party to handle the 

3. A clear TOR and timeline for the investigating team.

4. Findings to be made public and recommended action.

This or a variation of this could work well to appease the community and other

As indicated, these are serious allegations.

I would encourage the community to not leap to conclusions prematurely.

If you have lost your faith in the board then vote for different candidates at 
the next election.

I have not lost my trust in the board, but will need to be assured soon that a 
credible process is being followed.

We have a governance committee, we have a legal advisor, we have several board 
members who are untainted by the allegations.

Let the board propose a process and we can comment (or let the board approach 
the community or parts of the community for input prior to their proposal).

When I say soon, I would suggest a few days for reflection is appropriate and I 
would suggest that end of day Friday (or first thing on Monday morning) would 
be reasonable for us to expect a detailed response on next steps.

Obviously sooner would be appreciated.

There is loss of trust in the board. This is the point where a critical review 
of AFRINIC mandate must be done.

I think we need to clean up our house and not taking side clean our board.

I still think at this stage until board pronounced itself.  Even CEO should 
wait for board.
