What demand would there be for a dedicated SNBA cargo planes flying to and from Africa now they will not be using a B747 Combi?

A B757F might work.
But SNBA doesn't have intention to operate freighter to Africa.

Correct, I also think that's not a good idea. For the moment SNBA did a good job to transport cargo with the A330-300. Pax and cargo: good combination and less costs.
I think also that in the future it will be very busy with cargo between Bru and Africa.

Ethiopian served Addis Abeba, Caïro, Naïrobi. Singapore will served Johannesburg in a few months. BAOG Air and BEAP are going to start with freight services between Bru and West-Africa, South-Africa and East-Africa.
