I'm not familiar with conditions in other African countries, but I
suspect the average South African home user has an ADSL / 3G / whatever
router that is not capable of IPv6, so ISP implementation is not the
only large obstacle. Perhaps some of them can have their firmware
upgraded to IPv6, but I'm not sure in how many cases that is true.

Conversely, I suppose larger organisations are probably mostly using
hardware that *is* capable of IPv6...
