I 100% agree with you. they have to be present as always 'requested', at 
least at two AfNOG meetings prior to the one they want to host.

Furthermore i think AfNOG is really mature enought to have a very formal 
organizational structure and  let people know exactly who they must deal 
with and who is responsible of what... and when! A very clear hosting 
process should be design and followed ... without that we will be facing 
the same problem every year...
