Mike explained that there was a change of heart as bringing too many cameras in the mine would create speculation. He said this would disrupt and interfere with efforts to locate the three workers’ He went on to say that by taking so many cameras into the mine, people would film many things that might create Twitter conversations. The mission is to collate Pretty Nkambule, Yvonne Mnisi and Solomon Nyerende. They decided to focus on the mission until it’s over. However, Begg would not speculate about the condition of the three miners. According to the mine`s spokesman, Zietsman during the drilling process the machine that was used there to drill broke down and was taken to eMalahleni for fixing. During his interview on SAfm`s breakfast show, Zietsman said that the mine did not offer compensation to the families. “The mine will do everything in its power to give the right kind of support to the ç. The offer to compensate did not come from the mine and there has been no money that has been paid to anyone” Zietsman on SAfm
