Dark hairy caterpillar in need of ID

Observation - Dark hairy caterpillar in need of ID - Southern Africa. Description: Pics a bit overexposed, caterpillar is quite dark in appearance. Found it in the courtyard at night

Pics a bit overexposed, caterpillar is quite dark in appearance. Found it in the courtyard at night, thought it might be ready to pupate. No amount of kitchen paper, leaves, soil, or any living possible host plant, is making this cat happy, and it is still not pupating. I need an ID..
