Cape Town is the ‘best paying city’ in South Africa, with an average salary of R374 173 advertised for January.
Johannesburg came in second place with an average salary of R359 285 advertised for January.
The Free state ranked as the worst paying city in South Africa, with an average pay of R210 837.
