Lacus Waikare: A little piece of Waikato in Outer Space

A good opportunity to get rid of some monkeys!

Who would’ve thought that they’d name one of the hydrocarbon lakes on Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, after our very own Waikare. What an honor!

Here at Eraka’s Blog we would like to volunteer a number of Te Arataura Monkeys to be shot off in a rocket heading towards Saturn. Wouldn’t that be lovely!

    we nominate wiremu puke – we learn he has been sacked off a project – details uncertain – unknown – something to do with the waikato expressway

    for years puke practised morgan and te arataura’s dirty habits – keeping information to himself – claiming to represent this and that group – namtok? WTF is this? apparently this namtok has been getting puutea for years from hamilton city council and for what? last years annual plan -126,000.00 – wtf?

    namtok is described by the city council – as ‘an iwi group representing the views of local tangata whenua’ – is that so? we have been getting lots of stuff about this namtok NOT talking to anyone and that it is not a group but one person – puke and his cronies – and the shareholders in the namtok – two are dead but the annual returns for years still include them – we smell a rat – a really dirty rat

    who else has been burned by this monkey? off into desert of isolation he goes -where he deserves to be –

    I suggest whanau to read the Hamilton City Council’s District Plan 1999- 2000 and that will explain the role of Nga Mana Toopu O Kirikiriroa and Te Kauhanganui and Te Runanga O Kirikiriroa. Te Parapara Gardens, Carved pou that mark our old Pa and waahi tapu in Kirikiriroa. We unforturnately suffer the same treatment from Tuku so dont lump us in the same boat.

We unforturnately suffer the same treatment from Tuku over variation 21 so dont lump us in the same boat.

    @ Wiremu – you refer only to the 1999-2000 District Plan, what about the district plans pertaining to NamTok after that period to 2011?? You also mention Variation 21, Julie Hardaker did not permit it which is what lost the former mayor, Simcock his position. You make reference to past and non existent plans and rulings. Your involvement with current activities and the funding attached to them is what’s being asked, remember Wiremu, accountability and transparency is a requirement of everyone representing the interests of our people and in being receipt of associated funds.

    The Hamilton City Councils 1999- 2001 District Plan is the current plan that is still currently under review so for the moment the current plan is still operative until a new plan is put out for public consultation hopefully by next year. A city simply cannot perform its planning developement and consenting matters on no plan at all. The Nga Mana Toopu Trust is funded via a contract for RMA services with the city council and is not by funded by the tribe or its companies. Our Trust has a full time qualifed CA Accountant and a operative trustboard with new board members from the 5 local hapu which are the 5 biggest according to the tribes bene roll. Our members are accountable to their hapu and marae. I do report to the board on a bi monthly basis or on a regular basis as matters arise in terms of our operations or events etc.

    As reported in the media, Julie Hardaker got in on a very well run campain but by only 1000 votes and its wasnt just on variation 21 but the budget blow outs with the V8s which are now coming to the forefront in the recent news. If you wish to attend any of our Hui’s associated with Nga Mana Toopu, then you are most welcome to do so. I just completed a report for TGH regarding the Ruakura Estate – land port as a private consultant which I expect will be handed out to Kauhanganui for viewing.

    Crap. you resigned last year from namtok – now one director with 4 shareholders – 2 of shareholders are dead. you were a director then and you and rawiri filed an anual return to companies office – that is misrepresentation – you have not declared that those people have passed on –

    you do not report to anyone. you have your own company namtok consultancy ltd. you also have namtok projects ltd. there are NOT five major hapu on board – only you and rawiri – the trust deed is no longer valid – you and derek burns have claimed for years it is being updated – .

    emails from ngati wairere (both hukanui and tauhei marae) people say they do NOT know what you are doing in their name. Just like maree / marie pene – you both claim to represent ngati wairere. feedback we ‘re getting is intotal conflict with yours – you take pepeha and sell it for cash – you exploit ngati wairere history – you are not even ngati wairere – you are living off hare puke’s name – you trade on his name – you both are frauds and con artistes.

    media releases talk about wiremu puke of ngati wairere – how come ngati wairere held a hui and demanded you tell them what you are up to? why did you get sacked from the waikato expressway if you are so important?

    tgh report is also crap – we threw it in the bin. you have ripped off other people’s work for years and you have been claiming (from the emails) that YOUR area of responsibility over-rides that of tangata whenua.

    you have no veto power or anything control over who hires who and when – only people you both protect are your own greedy claims –

    hamilton city 2009-2010 plan namtok got $126,000 – 2 councillors refused to support motion- how much came back to the hapu? zip zero nad – we bet!
