I can almost guarantee that this is down to local legal issues and processes as opposed to being something within PlayStation's control.
In Australia, games can be released up to 6 months late due to stringent licensing and age rating laws.
In Germany, free games (like DUST 514, for example) and content which is rated 18 simply cannot be released due to laws against it. This causes huge problems with releasing content for PlayStation Home.
It's probably a similar story in SA. I ran a quick google search but couldn't find any information about rating a licensing processes for SA.
It is absolutely not in PlayStation's interest to release games later in specific territories (save for when cultural differences make releasing a game risky, as per Catherine, a game destinctly aimed at Japanese players). At the end of the day, they want to make money as quickly as possible.
I would look to factors in your own country, such as the law, which may be causing the delay.
