http://www.africanlocalisation.net/ might be one organisation to contact
for local speakers.  This organisation, or their partners, might have a
budget to pay for travel costs of speakers from their projects.
Partners include the University of Nairobi(!) and Denis Jacquerye, who
Jakub might remember from Libre Graphics Meeting in Brussels (he also
co-manages the DejaVu project).

It's also possible they might be able to get funding from UN
organisations like UNESCO (especially if the event is about open source
and not just Fedora).
