Deloitte appoints new partner
“I congratulate Abel on this significant achievement and welcome him to the partnership. Abel’s achievement is the result of his efforts and commitment to excellence. This is evidence that if you work hard, you will achieve,” said Junius Mungunda, Deloitte’s managing partner.
Akayombokwa said it is a privilege to be involved with such an international organisation and that the exposure one gets while working with high profile clients, coupled with personal development amongst other benefits, is an opportunity that should be savoured.
He said, Deloitte as a firm is proud of its transformation achievements, having contributed the highest number of qualified previously disadvantaged Namibians to the accounting profession.
“It is my view, looking back at my journey and to where I am today, that success can only be limited by your own imagination and, in a country like ours, I believe that through hard work, dedication, discipline, and perseverance, every child should be able to reach their dreams,” he said.
Akayombokwa completed a Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University of Namibia after which he joined City Savings and Investment Bank (CSIB) in 1997 as an internal auditor where he was tasked with establishing the Internal Audit Function at the new bank.
In February 2002 he decided to further his career by becoming a chartered accountant. He went to the University of Natal, where he completed his Bachelor of Commerce Honours (Accounting) degree and commenced his training contract with Deloitte in January 2003. He qualified as a chartered accountant in 2006.
