Merebank twin brothers Dhireshan and Diloshan , fondly known as Delon and Deon, have together qualified as accountants and they will receive their National Diploma in Internal Auditing at the Durban University of Technology on 17 June 2008.
The two brothers have parted their ways for the first time since they were born 21 years ago. Both are now working as trainee accountants for different accounting firms. Delon works for F Suleman and Associates, and Deon is employed at J C Derl Business Consultants.
They have been at the same school and class until they completed their matric in 2004. They then enrolled at DUT in 2005 for internal auditing because it entailed accounting which was something they enjoyed. In their matric year Delon had a merit pass and Deon obtained distinctions in maths and accountancy. In the three years that they studied at DUT, they received 25 distinctions each.
It has been a habit for them to do everything together besides, sleep and bathing! They like playing soccer, cricket and spending time with friends and family. “At first it was different because we were together for our schooling career and on campus but now we are getting used to it,” says Delon.
Though separated by employment, the Naidoo brothers still continue to do things together. They are currently studying further towards becoming chartered accounts through UNISA.
Their mother, Mrs Sharitha Naidoo is proud of her boys, she refers to them as the Dees. During their spare time they like spending time with family and their niece, Rhea, who is 2 months old. She says they have lots to catch up on in the evenings and over the weekends. She also adds that they spend their spare time tutoring kids in maths and accounting.
“Their turning point in life was when they received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior into their lives. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom,” concludes Mrs Naidoo.
