Some smaller birds from Lake Langano/Ethiopia #2

1: Weaver?
2: ?

I took the picture at Lake Langano (Ethiopia), 25.1.2016
If it is not possible to identify the bird the family or genus would also be helpful.

Thanks for your help

1. This is a Ruppell's Weaver male, as the photo I identified in another thread last week was a Ruppell's Weaver female. This weaver was the commonest weaver in Ethiopia when we were there.

2. I think this is just African Grey Flycatcher.
