"Give us service, that's what we need. No fighting, nothing. We just want power...We vote for you, give us power. We are going to pay, that's it. No fighting, but they don't listen to us. According to me, I don't see that democracy," one resident said.

Beyers Naudé and Marine Drive were closed with a heavy police presence monitoring the situation.
