  1. Still a paltey pay. Huge yet meaningless figures. To see the trie pufchasing power just dicide the salary by 150. E.g Senior lectureers salary translates to US$867.00. This means this senior lecturer doesnt afford to drive, cannot send his children to a proper school and is a pauper.

That’s something, though not comparable to South Africa or Europe. But then again, in the context of our current problems, that is quite some money and I’m sure it gives them quite some relief.
