Could also be a Yellow-backed weaver.

Golden-backed weaver it is, because of the chestnut underparts and the black extending onto the nape.

Edit; by having a second look on some of my own pics of Golden backed, I think this is a Yellow backed weaver.
The black is not extending as far onto the nape plus the yellow on the back is only a yellow collar and the plain olive-green on the back, where it is supposed to be bright yellow on the Golden backed weaver.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Hi Bert/Maurice,

Did you consider the very common Black-headed Weaver? http://www.flickr.com/photos/francesco_veronesi/2927472580/

Edit -> I just discovered that it's the same as the Yellow-backed. Ploceus Melanocephalus.

Ik verander hem op observado weer terug in ploceus melanocephalus, wat dan als engelse naam in observado heeft: black-headed weaver, en niet: yellow-backed weaver, zoals in birds of east africa
 
Bedankt voor de asistentie

Da's eigenlijk wel vreemd dat in sommige gidsen hij de Black-headed heet en in andere de Yellow-backed maar in Observado alleen de Black-headed. Je zou er melding van kunnen maken want dit leidt, blijkbaar, tot verwarring -> http://forum.waarneming.nl/smf/index.php?topic=55244.0
