Mtu­tuzeli Nyoka grew up lov­ing and play­ing the game of cricket.

In 2008, he was ap­pointed the pres­i­dent of Cricket SA (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 at the CSA. When re­tired Judge Chris Ni­chol­son con­ducted an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the body, his find­ings on the cor­rup­tion and mal­ad­min­is­tra­tion in the game were damn­ing, par­tic­u­larly in terms of (then CEO) Gerald Ma­jola.

Nyoka cur­rently lives in Johannesburg where he prac­tises as an ear, nose and throat sur­geon. His first novel, I Speak to the Silent (UKZN Press), was pub­lished in 2004 to wide­spread crit­i­cal ac­claim, and his sec­ond novel, A Hill of Fools (Pic­a­dor Africa), was pub­lished in 2013.

De­lib­er­ate Con­ceal­ment is his first non­fic­tion work.
