Here is a reply from "Themba Ndlovu":

Dear Firstname Lastname,

To claim your prize you need to come down
here personally to south Africa before the deadline
for claims, to make the claim and collect your 
prize cheque as you will need to perform signing of
documents at the gammings board before you can be
issued a certificate for your winnings.

In the event of your inability to claim personally
you could authorize us to claim on your behalf and
send your prize cheque to you. But in this case 
you must remmit to us the fees for processing and
sending you your cheque by Insured Diplomatic express
courier and this fee is broken down as follows:

If you chose us to claim please let us know so we can
give you details on how to remmit this fee so we can
process and send you your cheque.

Mr. Themba Ndlovu
