Mirambo aliwahi kutajirika kama [[mfanyabiashara]] ya [[pembe za ndovu]] na [[watumwa]] kwa njia ya [[Biashara ya misafara|misafara]] kati ya [[pwani]] ya [[Bahari Hindi]] na [[Kongo]].
 
Alitumia sehemu kubwa ya [[utajiri]] wake kujenga [[jeshi]] la binafsi. Kwa kusudi hilo alinunua [[bunduki]] aina ya [[gobori]] na kukusanya [[vijana]] wengi walioitwa "rugaruga". [[Rugaruga]] hao walihofiwa kote. Inasemekana ya kwamba kabla ya mapigano walipewa [[pombe]] na [[bangi]] kwa kusudi la kuongeza ukatili na kupunguza [[hofu]] yao ya kifo.
 
Kwa kawaida vijana hao walikuwa [[wanaume]] walioishi bila [[ukoo]] na bila [[familia]] kisha kutoroka kwenye hali ya [[utumwa]] au kuwa [[wapagazi]] wa misafara.<ref>John Iliffe: ''A Modern History of Tanganyika''.
