It's not a skipper at all, but the 'african monarch' or 'african queen'
Danaus chrysippus, a male.
A good book, though for this one you do not really need it, as it is common
over the whole of Africa and parts of Europe and Asia, is 'the Butterflies
of Kenya and their natural history' by Torben. B. Larsen.
