The Lobbyists are hard at work

It’s been reported that the Maori King’s office have been frantically busy contacting marae representatives and urging them to pledge their support for Tuku and the Arataura’s on the vote this weekend.

About the only marae that they can really count on is the marae reps from Horahora.

Is it true that Horahora marae received a $500,000 gift of Tainui cash from Tuku when they were in serious crap over the building of their new wharekai a couple years back?
