Found it on my stair rails. It was weak and not flying away but alive

A couple of toads seen mating in a small stream at the Giraffe Center forest, Nairobi. Possibly Garman's Toads but I'm not 100% sure...
We call this the Leleshwa bush in Kenya, some call it Camphor bush elsewhere. I know it scientifically as Tarchonanthus camphoratus but it doesn't seem to be recognized by iNaturalist. Maybe it underwent taxonomic revision? It has very aromatic leaves and is sometimes called the deodorant of the African bush.
Catapillar with zebra-like body pattern and a red head. Fairly hairy. Possibly belongs to a moth species. Anyone with a clue who this little fella is?

We noticed this wasp dragging an apparently dead or paralyzed spider while bird ringing at the Nairobi National Museum. It had a black body with black orange-tipped wings. Its legs were mainly orange but black at the base. Its antennae were orange with black tips. It was definitely a Spider Wasp but I'm not sure which exact species... Any ideas?

Another shot ... more from the top. I wish I had taken out the bigger camera. This formation stayed alive through the day and stayed this way, did not fly away in the night.
In Kenya after rains, termites fly. By morning these usually die and are scattered all over the place. I was greeted by this unique formation of termites that were still alive next morning right at my doorstep. The were flickering and alive.
Two such formations, this one was smaller than the other.
