It is recommended that AFRINIC members move their routing policies into the AFRINIC IRR, however, they are at liberty to choose what to do. If the choice is to remain using the APNIC, RADB, RIPE RR, nothing will break the existing data.

No. The AFRINIC IRR is free to use only for AFRINIC members and is not available to use for anyone else, other than basic querying/searching for routing policies defined by network operators that are AFRINIC members.
