Well, not really, it seems:
Your request is of a public resource, approval for this resource shall be considered.
 Please use the user panel at: http://www.africover.org/system/user/ to monitor the
status of your request and to download the data sets if approved.

Your request will be processed within 14 days.  Should you not receive a response to
this request in due time, please contact the administrator through the control panel
for assistance.

Please note that your request will be rejected if you belong to a private/commercial
organization or if you are an individual user.  As stated in the Africover website
within the Data Dissemination section, Africover is not allowed to release data to
individuals or private and commercial organizations.
Quite strange, for data classified as "Public domain", isn't it?

All the best.
