CEO's Monthly Update - December 2020

Published On -

Dear Colleagues,


I hope that you are all keeping well. It is that time that I share with you the monthly updates-the last update of 2020. I wish to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for the continued constructive engagement, support, and contribution that you have made this year that has seen AFRINIC realize yet another year.


IP Misappropriation Case Updates

  • I have been keeping you updated on this throughout the year. We, therefore, agreed to publish a comprehensive report following the completion of our internal audit exercise. As notified last week, the report is now at the legal vetting stage. A copy thereof will be published early next year once the Board of Directors has taken cognizance of the same. I shall continue to keep you updated on this as we go along.

Review of 2020

  • Despite the challenges we have faced this year, we have been able to execute our mandate and serve our community and members. As we embark on our new strategic plan 2021 – 2023, we are determined to build on what we have achieved together and will continue to grow the organisation. We shall highlight more on our achievements in the 2020 and 2021 activities plan in our upcoming blogs during the first quarter of 2021.

End of year Office closure notice

As we move closer to the end of the year, I take this opportunity to inform you that AFRINIC offices will be closing for the Festive season Holidays on the following days:

* Thursday 24 December 2020
* Wednesday 30 and Thursday 31 December 2020
* Monday 4 January 2021

We shall resume on Tuesday, 5 January 2021.

However, during this time, our teams have done everything possible to ensure all services are accessible and a team will be on standby should there be any emergencies.


I take this opportunity to wish you a happy holiday season. 2020 has been a difficult year but we wish you a very healthy and prosperous 2021.

I once again thank you for your engagement throughout the year and look forward to your continued trust and support come 2021.


Kind Regards,


Eddy Kayihura,
