Former CSA chief Nyoka to write book on IPL scandal
Johannesburg: Former Cricket South Africa (CSA) President Ntutuzeli Nyoka is set to write a book on the Indian Premier League (IPL) scandals which led to the eventual firing by CSA of his childhood friend Gerald Majola.
Majola was the chief executive of CSA when a scandal broke around huge IPL II bonuses that he paid himself and other CSA staff without Board approval.
IPL-II was hosted by South Africa after hurried negotiations between Majola and then IPL supremo Lalit Modi due to security concerns around general elections at the time in India.
After nearly two years of wrangling, CSA fired Majola following intervention by the Minister of Sport and a damning report against him.
During Majola`s battle to cling to his position, Nyoka was ousted twice in one year in the wake of his call for an investigation into the IPL bonuses.
Although a court later ordered his reinstatement, Nyoka declined to take up the position again.
Nyoka told the daily Sowetan that he was on the fourth draft of his book titled `Deliberate
Concealment`, based on the reports of the many lawyers who described Majola`s conduct.
Nyoka said the struggle in CSA had left a bitter taste in his mouth as Majola, with whom he had grown up in Uitenhage in Eastern Cape Province, turned on him.
He said they grew up "sleeping in each other`s homes, in the same bed" as neighbours.
When asked if his revelations about the IPL issue and Majola`s role would not disparage his one-time bosom buddy, Nyoka said he had told the CSA board that "we shall speak the truth" and
`Deliberate Concealment` was aimed at this objective.
Nyoka, a medical specialist by profession, has already published two fiction-based novels. He said switching to the IPL scandal and deception by a childhood friend as a non-fictional work would not be difficult.
A lover of biographies, Nyoka cited that of Jawaharlal Nehru as his second favourite after Nelson Mandela`s `Long Walk to Freedom`.
