King causes outrage to Ngai Tuhoe

Who's an egg!

The news circulating round the Maurea Poukai was that at the recent Matatini competition in Gisborne, the king’s spokesman Rahui Papa, spoke to Tuhoe elders and suggested that the maori king would be glad to appear at the upcoming Tuhoe Ahurei celebrations on the following conditions: that an appearance fee be paid to the king and his entourage and that the kings banner be the sole flag flying over the Tuhoe venue.

Its needless to say that the Tuhoe people are outraged by this ridiculous proposition!

Yet another embarrassing faux-pas moment that he would rather forget, egg all over your face Rahui Papa.

    Rahui Papa, Sad for reasons that are obvious,Tuhoe are their own sovereignty. A bit of history,you asked Ngai Tuhoe for their help? as was given they paid with their lives!! You expect cash for your king!! Ask yourself if you can bring my Tuhoe tipuna back!! that’ll be worth a penny too see!!! Get Tukuroirangi to pay for your king to be in Tuhoe…! for the pillar that you are? I, am a descendant of both Tainui, me Ngai Tuhoe…”BLOODTIE’S RECOGNISE” it’s free

    The curse of the white mans paper is so truly proficient by his fore-bearer kingi Tawhio, and that is all he really is a curse to his people said by his own forefather.
