Name Kouga’s new mascot and win makietie tickets

NAME THE DROP COMPETITION: Kouga’s cute new water mascot will officially be named at the opening of the Kia Makietie Jeffreysbaai on Friday, 21 September. The mascot was welcomed to Kouga by Mayor Horatio Hendricks, Kouga Business Forum chairman Joe Ferreira, Makietie chief organiser Leilani Coetsee and Kouga Planning, Development and Tourism Portfolio Councillor Bryan Dhludhlu.

The Kouga region has a new water mascot and we need residents’ help to pick the perfect name for this cute blue drop.

The winning name will be announced at the opening of the Kia Makietie Jeffreysbaai on 21 September, with the person who suggested the name receiving a special invite to the opening, a rainwater tank from Kouga Municipality and four weekend admission tickets (for two adults and two children) to the Makietie.

The mascot will make a special appearance at the Makietie on Friday evening and will also be at the festival on Saturday to mingle with visitors. The Makietie takes place at the Jeffreys Bay Caravan Park from Friday to Sunday, 21 to 23 September.

Executive Mayor Horatio Hendricks said the mascot would be the official face of Kouga’s water-saving campaign.
