Default African Dagger for ID

I have just purchased this dagger but I am unsure of itís exact origin. I was woundering if someone could help me identify it. I think itís sudanese.

Always easier to tell if we can see the whole dagger sans sheath. Nice leatherwork. Mandinka based on the leather is possible.
