The famous South African should be

Elon Musk

The name of the two first people

1. IDA Flo
2. Don Tox

IDA Flo is under "place" and now we switch place of the two and get Flo IDA. Add an R in between and we get Florida.

Same thing with Don Tox, switch place of the two and you get Tox Don. Add an O in between and you get Toxodon which is an extinct animal.

Now for the "thing" which is suppose to be represented by a famous South African

my mind immediately thought of Nelson Mandela (which doesn't look promising since no word can be made by Mandela(?)Nelson but then I thought of Elon Musk. And indeed if we switch place of the two: Musk Elon we can, by adding an M in between, create the word Muskmelon which is a "thing" (fruit)

Here is an image:

Ah so I had the thing as: ENABLER

Switching 'ENA' and 'LER you get LERENA - the South African boxer.

Also the 'R' 'O' and 'B' added letters neatly spells the name 'ROB'.

Muskmelon is more of a thing than an enabler though! Fair play
