Hi Kwame,
happy new year to you too!

do you want to create a reverse DNS entry - for mapping IP address to name?
you have to set up a zone like 128.204.41.in-addr.arpa.
on your DNS servers and then put a PTR record like

16        PTR     mx.zantel.co.tz.

into it.

and finally create a domain object in AfriNIC DB so that AfriNIC DNS
servers point (delegate) to your DNS servers for your zones.
