Uganda Fish Identification

I recently returned from Uganda. I fished the Victoria Nile below Murchison Falls and caught several Nile Perch. We also caught some baitfish that the local guide called a "walker". Attached is a picture I took of the fish. it was about  20cm long. Can anyone help me properly identify this fish. Thank you.

Looks like Brycinus macrolepidotus.  A very handsome fish with the orange and red.

Sorry I didn't see this post earlier.  In the future, post fish ID questions to the fish identification discussion forum.  Thanks!
