Aphids would be somewhat unusual on African violets, but you could just remove them gently by hand. Or, you could remove them with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. This will also work for mealybugs. Here is a little information about the more common pests you might find on these plants, perhaps you will recognize one of them.
