Mtutuzeli Nyoka: Was the Struggle Only to Replace White Corruption with Black Corruption? (On Cricket SA)

Deliberate ConcealmentTelford Vice recently interviewed Mtutuzeli Nyoka about his memoir Deliberate Concealment: An Insider’s Account of Cricket South Africa and the IPL Bonus Saga for a Sunday Times article.

In the interview, Nyoka speaks about his soured relationship with Gerald Majola, his close childhood friend who also turned out to be a corrupt beneficiary of the bonus scandal that threatened to tear South African cricket apart a few years ago.

Nyoka is grateful for the long friendship he enjoyed with Majola, as they grew up in the same neighbourhood and shared many significant moments. However, when the corruption Majola was involved in was uncovered, Nyoka says he realised “our values were irreconcilable, and events left us little choice but to be on the opposite sides of a protracted and dirty conflict”.

Read the article:

In Deliberate Concealment: An Insider’s Account of Cricket South Africa and the IPL Bonus Saga, Mtutuzeli Nyoka – at the time Cricket South Africa’s (CSA) whistle-blowing president who took the lead in exposing the controversy – details dirty dealings in other administrators’ attempts to weasel their way out of trouble.

“We have a history of struggle in this country and we need to ask ourselves what we were struggling for,” Nyoka told the Sunday Times. “Was it to replace corruption with honour and honesty, or was it to replace white corruption with black corruption?”
