Container in container [Self-watering syatem]

Hi,
I live in Nairobi, Kenya.
I don't understand why people complicate things when building self-watering containers.
Can anyone tell me what can go wrong in just putting the container that has the soil and plant into another container [as shown in the photo]. All I do is make sure the bottom container contains enough water all the time. [It can get very hot here.]

Also, my potting soil is equal parts of red clay soil, coconut coir and compost. How can I improve on this?

My strawberry plant in this situation is doing very well.
