Anti-crime activist and writer @Anichin33784174 in South Africa made the statement on Twitter. After each mining operation, the "Zama Zama Reveals how much money they make."
A group of illegal miners stated how much money they made after each illegal mining operation in the mines they were involved with. He claimed to have made $45,000 in a single day. However, they can make R20,000 in two weeks if they're lucky.
Another said that he had never been married before starting his illegal mining business. His family now includes three children, all of whom he raises on the illicit mining money he earns.
When they go into the mines, one of them claimed they are also armed since there are other miners like them, and the only way to avoid being taken advantage of is if you fall prey to one of them.
Because this is their livelihood, the Zama Zama stated that they are constantly ready for any onslaught.
