I'd say it certainly belongs in the Erebidae: Arctiinae but as there are so few on-line resources I wouldn't attempt to go any further unless it's possibly an Afrospilarctia sp.

That’s a quick response with really good info Honeym, thank you for your help. I didn't really expect to get to species level.

Thanks, John
