In this respect, more suggestions were to have finance office with an accountant to work as custody of all the university finances. This is when Sr. Stella Kanyunyuzi came onboard to serve as the first person in that newly created office.
This required self motivation, hard work and enthusiasm as she was fully responsible of all the tasks that concerned finance. The office then grew into department with a trusted accounting system, professional accountants.
