In Papua New Guinea there are villages without roads ... people there travel by
foot, plane or boat!
The terrain is such that vehicle roads, even for bicycles, is impractical.
I don't have detailed knowledge of Africa to say if these villages could be
real or not... but I would hesitate to delete them without that knowledge.
Possibly question the original mapper or a mapper active locally or
failing any of that producing results demote them to locality and await a
mapper with on ground experience.

Not only that, someone has already picked them out:
Looking a bit more at the list, I wonder if we should maybe delete all

I have the impression that many of these nodes are stranded in the
wilderness between several, meanwhile-mapped, populated places, and the
danger of getting lost while trying to reach one of these places might
outweigh the advantage of having them.
