According to the Kouga Local Municipality on Thursday, 'unruly' community members have been sabotaging the power supply to Ocean View, Tokyo Sexwale, Pellsrus, the Marina Martinique, Aston Bay and Paradise Beach.

"These areas might experience further power outages during the course of the day because of the sabotage.

"We apologise for any inconvenience this is causing to law-abiding residents. We are doing all in our power to resolve the matter as quickly as is possible."
