MASERU — Three hundred and twelve students from the Centre for Accounting Studies (CAS) were awarded diplomas and certificates at a colourful ceremony on Friday.
The students were awarded diplomas and certificates in Technician Accounting, General Accounting, Chartered Accountancy and Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy.
Speaking at the institute’s 32nd graduation ceremony, the Principal Chief of Matsieng, Dr Seeiso Bereng Seeiso, said the graduation marked the start of a journey into a world that demands respect for ethics.
“The world is facing an economic crises because people who were trusted to manage the economy misused the funds,” he said.
“Today (Friday) you are given the opportunity to face the world and fight this problem and you should be honest.”
Chief Seeiso was also inaugurated as the first chancellor of CAS.
The Rector of CAS, Mubita Anakoka, said they were happy that more students were graduating in various studies.
“For the first time after 11 years we are having 18 students graduating as Chartered Accountants,” Anakoka said.
Speaking on behalf of the students, Tumelo Lepota, thanked the National Manpower Development Secretariat for funding their
studies adding that without the institution many of them could not have had the chance to study.
He however pleaded with the NMDS to increase students’ living allowances as the institution does not offer accommodation.
“We struggle a lot because we have to make sure that we have money to buy food and pay rent as our school does not have accommodation,” he said.
“Some students have to walk long distances to school as they don’t have money for transport and this affects their performance.”
