    hi
    I want to register a domain with an African TLD....

    since this country is in Africa, I am concerned that there is no laws there and they can take my domain away any time they wish for any reason. what I am concerned about is me promoting the site and then after a while having it disappear or having it taken away from me.
    Is this something that I should be concerned about? or they are as safe as .com's and .net's ?

    You cannot speak about all of Africa in one sweeping statement.

    Without knowing which one of the 50 odd TLDs in Africa you are referring to, nobody can help.

    Don't forget that .ly is Libya, which according to my map, is African.

    Some countries on the other hand, have laws requiring you to have a business in the country before you can use their TLD.

    YMMV
