The spate of crime caused by illegal mining activities in Johannesburg warrants an increase in policing, said Premier David Makhura on Monday. “We have been battling with the problem of illicit mining. This crime affects many communities in Ekurhuleni, Johannesburg and West Rand who live along the gold mining belt,” Makhura said during his state of the province address in Sebokeng, south of Johannesburg.
