It’s been a difficult time for Tania Martin, the Waikato-Tainui leader who bounced back last week from a political crisis sparked by her scathing November report about executive tribal spending.

King Tuheitia fired her as a chairwoman of the tribe’s parliament, Te Kauhanganui, shortly after.

However, she refused to distance herself from her report which asked for greater transparency and a review of Te Arataura’s (Tainui’s executive board) activities.


Poukai flag stolen…


Mrs Monkey, could you pleese return the flag you stole!

Would the cheeky monkey who stole the Poukai flag from Hukanui Marae please bring it back.

The Hukanui Marae committee would really love to have their flag returned and are promising to give the cheeky monkey lots of bananas if She returns it in good condition. Kia ora!
