Unreliable airspeed at takeoff sounds like a pitot problem.
In many areas of africa there are small wasps which habitually try to set up home in pitots so pitot covers are fitted whenever an aircraft is on the ground.
Did someone forget to remove a cover ?

Just a random thought, it has happened before........
