JOHANNESBURG - Zandspruit community members say they will continue protesting and damaging property until their demands are met.

Hundreds of community members took to the streets from Tuesday night, saying they've not had electricity since Monday.

It's understood most homes have connected illegally, and Eskom cut supply.

WATCH: Taking power back … in more ways than one

Community members say they will be back on the streets this morning and every day until power supply is back.

One resident says people living in the shacks will continue to illegally connect their homes because government refuses to supply them with power.

But another resident, who says he has an electricity metre, says he doesn't understand why he must suffer because of others.
