RE: host locally or in the USA?
Generally the steps are:

1 - Configure your site to serve static content from a different domain (if your site is http://www.mysite.com you could use static.mysite.com or http://www.mysitestatic.com)

2 - Configure the CDN to pull files from http://www.mysite.com (origin pull is usually what they call it)

3 - Change the DNS entry for static.mysite.com to CNAME to the CDN provider's name they give you

Some will let you run the dynamic content throught their CDN as well which would be even easier to implement (just a DNS change) but it is usually exponentially more expensive than the static file services and doesn't provide as much benefit.

Akamai is pretty much the most expensive out their (justified by their footprint). Not sure what hosting costs are in South Africa but ti may end up being more affordable to host in SA.
