Mahoota is asking for people to report whoever is vandalising banners for his festival.

“This is getting serious and we are losing money as organisers which could have been spent on the event,” he said.

“It happens at night and what makes us angry is we don’t know the reason for this.

“This is a local show and we are trying to build the community but it seems like people are determined to ruin it for us.”

Popular DJ and producer Mahoota, also an organiser, said the vandalism had cost a total of R96 000.

“We are celebrating 10 years and this year, we have 30 artists performing. We are pleading with the community to report anyone vandalising banners to the police. They will get a reward,” he said.

Police spokesperson Sergeant Wendy Nkabi said: “A case of theft was opened, I can’t say anything else at the moment still need to talk with my superior.”

) Spring Jump Off takes place on 7 September at Mahungra Car Wash in Bloemfontein.
