As no one has replied, I'll say what I can. Further than family I don't think I can help - it is a Gomphid of some sort. I am not familiar with many of the sub families of the Gomphidae from Africa unfortunately. I have had a look here: http://www.africa-dragonfly.net/ but can't see anything that matches exactly. Jizz wise it looks similar to a female Onychogomphus.....
