Behind the Scenes During a Scandal: Former Cricket SA President Mtutuzeli Nyoka’s Deliberate Concealment
Presenting Deliberate Concealment, the first work of non-fiction from former Cricket South Africa President Mtutuzeli Nyoka, the author of the acclaimed novels I Speak to the Silent and A Hill of Fools:
Nyoka grew up loving and playing the game of cricket. In 2008, he was appointed as the president of Cricket South Africa (CSA), a position he held until October 2011 when, after a protracted battle with the CSA board, he was dismissed. However, he continued to call for a commission of inquiry into irregularities in CSA. And when retired Judge Chris Nicholson conducted an investigation into CSA, his findings on the corruption and maladministration in the game were damning, particularly in terms of Gerald Majola.
In Deliberate Concealment, Nyoka shares his behind-the-scenes experiences and personal journey as events unfolded, including his own mistakes, the repercussions of the scandal on the game of cricket in South Africa, and his fight for the truth to prevail.
“This is an extraordinary story of one man’s courage and determination to seek the truth and make sure it saw the light of day.” – Giles Clarke, president of the England and Wales Cricket Board
“During his tenure as president of Cricket South Africa, Mtutuzeli Nyoka fought almost alone to expose corruption and improve corporate governance within the higher echelons of South African cricket … for this the cricket community of South Africa owe him a great deal of gratitude.” – Dr Ali Bacher
