Hukanui Marae voted 26-to-14 to support the current chair of Te Kauhanganui at a hui in Gordonton two nights ago.
A heated discussion between marae representatives ensued which ended with representatives screaming at each other.
Its rumored that a marae rep. who disagrees with the result of the vote may attempt to sabotage Hukanui’s vote at Hopuhopu on Jan. 22. Could this be true?
Many other marae are indicating their preference to support the current chairperson and to have a comprehensive review of Tainui’s finances take place as soon as possible.
