Commentary opposing dot Africa initative

ICT expert and editor of ICTworks Wayan Vota puts forward his view on the proposed dot africa domain; he writes:

Where's the pressing need?

While I can see the interest in a dot.Africa domain name to generate additional URL registration fees, I don't see the overall need for a dot.Africa domain. Each country level registrar is already fighting against the lure of dot.com. If anything, the African Union should be promoting transparent and affordable domain registration at the country level. Its only when domain ownership is saturated there, should there be a continental domain.
