KIU, Main Campus - Angela Mbabazi, the speaker of the KIU Guild Union, has warned leaders of the KIU Ankole Students Association never to take anyone for granted.
While speaking during the Association's handover ceremony, the third most supreme student leader at KIU said that each person has got different ambitions, challenges, and inspirations.
Mbabazi called upon the new executive of Ankole Students Association to embrace discipline, integrity, honesty, and accountability in order to make the Association thrive. She also urged them to do more of the listening more than any other thing.
"People chose you because they believe in you. So, you should work towards meeting their expectations. Let's embrace a high level of discipline, integrity, be honest with our offices. Never take anyone for granted because each one fights for different reasons, ambitions, and goals. With that, you will make the Association thrive," Mbabazi said.
Dominic Mbangire, a KIU alumnus and former Guild member of parliament representing the College of Humanities and Social Sciences encouraged students to start thinking about business if they are to improve their financial statuses. He based on his own life story to emphasize the possibility of starting small.
"Small things can do wonders. You don't need bundles to startup a business in this environment. I started small by dealing in women's bras and knickers, which I would buy at a cheap price in town and sell for profit here in Kansanga. Now I have just opened up a bar and restaurant in Kalangala. All that is because I didn't wait for more money. I started with what I had at the time," Mbangire reflected.
The handover ceremony was attended by students from KIU and other universities in Uganda, alumni, several Guild officials, and heads of other associations, among others.
