According to unconfirmed reports, Lekwa and AfriRent had signed a month to month contract after their three-year-contract had expired.

The traffic department, among others, are currently without vehicles to perform their respective duties.

Kasselman Security Services sent a message on their group on 2 November where the public was informed that Lekwa confirmed that all their refuse trucks were broken and they could not specify a date when they will be in service again.
