Students Urged to Embrace a Savings Culture


By  Isaac Akugizibwe 

KIU, Main Campus - Students have been asked to learn how to save liquid money in order to build capacity. According to Asiimwe Edius, the Patron of the KIU Greater Kamwenge Students Association, saving money is helpful during uncertainties like that caused by COVID-19.

While presiding over the swearing-in ceremony of the new executive for Greater Kamwenge Students Association - KIU Chapter on Sunday 2nd May 2021, Asiimwe Edius emphasized that "These days power no longer belongs to those with great ideologies or thoughts but to those with money."

During the same ceremony Birungi Ozzo, one of the guests of honor added to the Patron's voice by encouraging students to come up with money-generating projects such that they can be supported.

"I encourage you to think and come up with income-generating projects that we can look at and be able to support you," Ozzo said.

The ceremony was also attended by the President of the Greater Kamwenge Inter-university Students Association, Hon. Agaba Nelson, and former Kamwenge MP contestant, Adrian Munyambabazi among others.

The new executive of the Greater Kamwenge Students Association - KIU Chapter will be headed by Asiimwe Richard as President. He also doubles as Minister of Information for the KIU Guild Union
