Unconfirmed African Station

Unconfirmed African station is broadcasting on 7.245 kHz. Station was monitored from 18.30 to 20.00 UTC on 14 June 2011. Signal (SINPO) was poorly received at 18.30 UTC with light QRM from stations operating on or near 7.245 kHz, some QRN and fading; at 19.00 UTC strong interference from CRI, I believe.  Programming consisted of African music and talk in African vernacular. Announcers were heard addressing the audience in the Muslim greeting, "Assalamu 'alaikum"; therefore I suspect this is an Islamic country, quite possibly Radio Mauritania (Channel One). Initially, I thought it was Radio Voice of the People in Zimbabwe, but the time of broadcast and Muslim greeting has me stymied. Listeners who are closer to Africa might have better luck in confirming this station. 73s!!!
