CEO's Monthly Update - October 2020

Published On -

Dear Colleagues,


Warm greetings, I did not provide an update last month as we were in full gear during AIS20.

The event brought over 500 delegates around the virtual table to discuss Internet growth and development, both regionally and globally.

I would like to once again thank you all for your contributions and participation towards a successful AIS20.

In the meantime, we have also been busy with the projects previously communicated online training sessions, RPKI, the WHOIS accuracy, and MyAFRINICv2, to mention a few.

However, in this message, I wanted to focus a little more on the Strategic Plan 2021–2023.

We are currently in the final stage of approving the plan after collecting your feedback. We aim to focus on growing into a customer-centric organization as we also work towards the review of our business model. I have followed the discussions on the members' list, and I am glad to see that our strategic plan is aligned with our membership's recommendations.

I have tasked our stakeholder engagement team to pilot a few engagements with our membership and the community to discuss means of improving your experience in dealing with AFRINIC and exploring avenues of better collaboration with our growing membership in the countries your operations.

For those interested in partnering on hosting and organizing these pilot engagements and bringing them to your local communities, please reach out to us at engagement at, and my colleagues will be in touch.

Last but not least, I would like to say farewell to George Nyabuga, AFRINIC's head of communications. He served AFRINIC and its community, and organizing a smooth AIS20 during this challenging time was his last task as AFRINIC staff. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.


Best regards,


Eddy Kayihura,
