A local expert just emailed me the following response after the photos were email to him:

This bird is a very young African Harrier Hawk (aka Gymnogene). Judging by the plumage, I don’t think it left the nest all that long ago... One doesn’t get to see photos of birds this young out in the field, so to speak, all that often.
Thanks guys.
