Disgruntled residents of Elandskop blockaded all the roads around the area on Monday morning due to ongoing power cuts.
It is alleged that the protesters have closed roads from Taylor's Halt to KwaMnyandu, and other nearby roads with burning tyres, bottles, and rocks.
The community is allegedly angered by the fluctuating power cuts which have been ongoing for weeks.
Local ward councillor Emmanuel Kwazikwakhe Madonda said the local leadership was making their way to meet the community.
Madonda said they have established that the community is demanding attention from the municipality and the power utility, Eskom.
“They have closed all the roads in the area including the main roads. We are still trying to make our way to the area because we don’t want the situation to escalate and become violent. At this present moment, everything is closed, and some workers are unable to go to work in many parts of the wards,” he said.
