Question IS THIS NZAKARA OR WHAT?

Hello, the seller of this short sword tells me that he has bought it in 1972 in south Sudan. The blade seems antique/old, but the handle is sure more recent and rather rough, badly finished. To me it seems Nzakara. What do you think?

What is Nzakara? Name of the dagger (if so, what are the distinguishing features)? Name of the tribe (who are they)?

Hello Ariel. The Nzakara is a tribe that is located in the north of Congo/Zaire, near some other tribes like Azande, Bandia, Ngbandi etc..
