Arrow A nice somali Belawa-Billawo-Billao

Hello, this is my last purchase: a Somali Belawa-Billawo-Billao. Unfortunatly the belt is detached from the scabbard , but, on other part, the scabbard, on the back side, has a nice inscription relative the age, the country where it was collected and the owner of this dagger : i can read "AFRICA SUDAN 1925 SITH WEAT". I hope that is quite clear on the pictures.

Could "SITH WEAT" be a town or an area, does not sound like a European name?
