Mystery Bird from Pemba, Zanzibar

Hello Everybody,
There is a "mystery bird" I couldn't identify. It was on Pemba Island, Zanzibar, Tanzania. Is it a species of cisticole?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Yes, just a fair few different ones to go through. Im sure someone with first hand experience will narrow it down. Other photos may help.
