Hi Bob
Great to see you back mate, I am far from being an expert, but this could be a Redstart, could be wrong.

Lovely exotic bird against the soft focus of the bg grasses, looks like Ringyneck has come up with the name, spectacular little bird.

I have to agree with the ID on this bird, I recognise it as a Superb Starling found all across East Africa, which is it's more common name.
A great shot of this beautiful bird. In some parts of Kenya they have become very tame and will feed from your hand.
