When one speaks of games, the likes of dibeke, induku and mlabalaba might not readily come to mind. Not yet anyway. If Nathi Nyoka has his way, these indigenous games will be recognised as readily as rugby, cricket and even soccer. Nyoka had, in the meantime, attained a diploma in social empowerment and development through African Enterprise. During that stint, he met several people who planted the seed of passion for indigenous games. Nyoka saw it as a viable means to contribute to the community. His vision was not matched by sceptical Sport and Recreation department administrators however, and he was often a source of ridicule when he sought to reveal his plans at council meetings.
