In an interview on Daily Hustle Worldwide, Nana Kwame mentioned that he migrated to the East African Island in 2017. According to him, the Mauritius government increased the daily wage from GHs170 to GHs270 a few weeks after he began working.
”As an unskilled labourer, I earn GHs270 daily for eight hours like Ghana. The system is similar to Ghana’s system. Construction work is an easier job to find as an unskilled labourer. You can work every day if you want. My company pays weekly. Other companies pay biweekly,” he said.
Speaking on the cost of living in Mauritius, Nana Kwame revealed it is relatively cheaper than Ghana. According to Kwame, he pays Ghs2000 for a two-bedroom apartment, and utility bills are included in the cost.
“When a Mauritian meets a foreigner, the first question he will ask is where you come from and why you are in their country.
If your landlord sees you home without working, but you can pay the rent, they begin to question your source of income. That is one thing I want Ghanaians to adopt,” he told DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa.
Moreover, Nana Kwame added that there are many Ghanaians living and working in Grand Bay, Mauritius. He mentioned that there are many jobs available for unskilled personnel.
