Gabriel Tenene, Manager of the Trainee Auditor Scheme at the Auditor-General of South Africa (AGSA), visited the University in order to hand over certificates of excellence to Lebogang Madumo and Olivia Nyembe after they passed the South African Institute of Chartered Accounts Qualifying Examination 1 (QE 1) this year.
Lebogang and Olivia were both part of the first group of UP Thuthuka students in 2007. They are currently doing their academic traineeship at UP’s Department of Accounting and will join the AGSA as second-year trainees in 2012. They are also both currently enrolled for a Master’s in Accounting at the University. The Department of Accounting and the AGSA are both very proud of these two young ladies’ achievements.
The AGSA is also a major sponsor of the Thuthuka Bursary Fund, which places 50 students at the University of Pretoria annually to study to become chartered accountants (SA).
