Our prices are sky high compared to the minimum wage in South Africa and Botswana.
To give you an example: The minimum wage in Botswana is P1000 per month. My monthly big grocery shop without daily milk, bread and fruit and veg that runs out is about P3500. The average rent for a 2 bedroom house in a middle class area is P5000 to P7000 per month.
I don't buy luxuries when I do my monthly shop either. I don't know how some people manage here, we live month to month and we have an income higher than 10 times the minimum wage.
