RASESA, BOTSWANA – The popular spot along A1 road dubbed Masa Gardens in Rasesa has announced that come every last Sunday of each month Batswana will be treated to an in-house picnic styled ‘Sweet Sundays’.
The revelation came recently after the joint became quite a spot and popular with family oriented events. Speaking at a media briefing last week Thursday, the event coordinator, Alec Fela said guided and motivated by several number of picnics gaining momentum around urban areas, they took a solid decision to establish their very own eat al fresco aptly tagged #SweetSundays, which will be family oriented and customer centric affair.
“Firstly Sweet Sundays is open to all family members. We have a section for kids of all ages. There will also be horse riding and we allow our customers to bring their own drinks, coolers and food even though we will still provide our own inside the venue. We have made our customers to be the centre of our daily operations as we now have a mobile app where they will be able to see what’s on prior and during our event.
Masa Gardens is an ideal drive away from Gaborone and a getaway to see Rasesa where there is also the iconic Matsieng foot prints, so this is why we remain adamant that ‘Sweet Sundays’ will become an instant hit”.
Furthermore, Alec Fela said their brainchild idea will become vital for the underprivileged people in his area as a certain percentage of the P50 gate takings will be used to uplift their wellbeing through their CSI initiatives.
He said they aim to work with the village leadership to select all the beneficiaries. He also said all Kgatleng-born artists are encouraged to submit their portfolios so they can be hired to perform thus helping their fledging careers.
“We are going to invest fully on the talent that is born in Kgatleng. However, we will guard against mediocrity and lack of quality. Mind you, we will be hosting customers and we want them to enjoy their Sundays to the max,” he concluded.Masa Gardens became operational in 2013 after the co-owner, Connie Phiri was retrenched and instead of crying a river started developing the venue.
The place hosts numerous type of events including weddings, graduation parties, and retreats among many.
