#Anonymous on Oct 16, 2019 :
I do leave in Maseru and I've just updated the prices. The cost of living for a local person who shops at local markets and owns their home out of the city, is extremely different to the cost of living for an international person living and renting in the inner city and shopping at the supermarket.

The rental prices are incredibly high, and there is limited supply - especially for one bedroom apartments. A one bedroom is likely to be 8000R-10000R, a two bedroom apartment in good condition can go for anything from 9000R-16000R, and a 3 bed between 20,000R-26,000R.

Likewise the cost of utilities on a two bed apartment for electricity is approx 600R/month in summer WITHOUT air conditioning, plus water at approx 250R/month. In winter, with cost of electricity/month is more like 1200R because heating is a must.

In terms of groceries, 1L of olive oil can cost between 150-240R depending on the brand. Butter is 100R for 500g. Some things, like bread, are cheap but are terrible quality and there is no variety.
