I think this is a blind snake of the Family Typhlopidae. I have not found it yet but shows some similarities to Rhinotyphlops sp., Megatyphlops sp. or Afrotyphlops sp. This website has some relevant drawings http://www.ethiopia-herpetology.com/lept....

Could also be a species of legglass lizard in the Aprasia family looking at the scales!
