Can you use plain flour instead of cornflour?

Not in all recipes; for most baking recipes substituting plain flour for cornflour will not work, since cornflour has no gluten (which is what makes dough springy) and it requires far more hydration. Adding some cornflour to the flour in baking will result in lighter baked goods, but only until the total flour is 5% cornflour; after that the baked good gets progressively more dense and inedible. Cornflour is useful for thickening custards, which plain flour is not so good at. But you cannot bake normally with cornflour. Both cornflour and wheat flour have a similar calorie content, wheatflour is lower in the glycemic load (GL) index compared to cornflour, and whereas cornflour is considered "highly inflammitory" (i.e likely to cause a reaction), wheatflour is only considered "inflammitory."

What is a substitute for cornflour in an African milk tart?

There is no good substitute for cornflour - any substitution will significantly alter the texture of the tart filling. Cornflour is used to set the filling smoothly - you could add a couple of egg yolks to the filling as a replacement. But the result will be different. Plain flour will not give a pleasant result as a substitute - the filling will taste floury.
