    – One of the biggest fast food outlets in Masvingo, Vision Centre has been opened and blessed by Masvingo Diocese, Bishop Bhasera at a function held at the venue two weeks ago.
    Tens of Roman Catholics donning their Church regalia turned up to join one of their congregant, Pascal Mudzikisi who is the proprietor at the opening of Vision Centre which is situated 45km from Masvingo along Masvingo-Mutare Highway.
    There was also a high profile business representation including captains from FBC, Agribank and N. Richards. Provincial Administrator, Felix Chikovo was also present.
    Vision Centre which also has a bar called Jakachaka Bar and a supermarket called East Village and a wholesale outlet is undoubtedly the most magnificent such outlet along highways that connect to Masvingo.
    Speaking at the occasion, Bishop Bhasera urged people to support the business so that the community grows with it. He said people must not steal from the business as this will bring it down.
    Bishop Bhasera then conducted a mass to bless the business and he had an opportunity to tour the whole complex as he blessed it.
    Mudzikisi who is also a farmer said the shopping complex was also intended to decongest Masvingo City as people can also do all their shopping at the centre whose umbrella name is Vision Centre.
    "Vision Centre will be much more than a shopping mall as there will be a leisure centre, a place where families will come for outings including outdoor games like basketball, tennis and others.
    "It is an outing outside town and we are promising the best facilties. It is also a form of decentralizing the city centers," said Mudzikisi.
    "I started with cabbages which I would count at dawn everyday so as to deal with the profit and loss at the end of the day. This failed due to diseases that were resistant to herbicides.
    "We then opted for egg production which was fruitful until a hostile takeover drove us out of business. The family has been a great inspiration and source of support. They stood through thick and thin getting their hands dirty when some workers quitted due to cabbage counting.
    'Jakachaka is the name of our late father and translated into English the name means generous giving. We therefore adopted it because vision centre will be a place of giving everybody, the locals and the business fraternity", he said.
    Mudzikisi later spoke to The Mirror about politics.
    He said there were invitations for him from political parties to join politics but he was not yet ready. When the time comes, he said, he will announce his entry.
    Father Mudhanganyi conducted the church sermon.
