It must be noted that the bulk of the stuff is in the hands-on experience. However some of the information was researched like the organizational structure of the firm.

A special thanks you goes to my honourable sponsors: Clarah Mandava and Moreblessing Mandava. To them I say I cherish your support and love. I feel greatly indebted and honored in conveying the very gratitude to the deservers, among others include, Mr Richman Kufazvinei, Mr Tariraishe Gwenzi, Peter Tafirenyika, Lovemore Luwaca and Robert Mucherera. To you all, I say keep on the good spirit of creating a conducive learning environment for students on attachment and greatly appreciate your contribution towards my successful completion of attachment.
Elijah Mafanire, Kossam Maunga, Ronald Shumba and Stanley Nyameni deserve also to be mentioned for allowing me to share jokes with them and debate some other important things. I also wish to wholeheartedly thank the NUST Accounting Department Chairperson Mrs F.Shumba and all the lecturers who have taught me so far. The knowledge you have imparted on me was most helpful and strongly applicable in the industry at large.
