yes, from this list, it's clear that there are a few in SA (TENET I

Tunisia (Tunisian Internet Agency, the national gateway/sole
provider?) has had a v6 production network for ~4 or 5 years IIRC.

Besides Tunisia, no.

For many I speak to, it's about lack of compelling need to start deployment.

Keep up/increase the training courses/capacity building.
