Te Arataura are Serving their own Interests

Said the high court judge and just like we’ve said all along, Te Arataura are only in it for themselves and they have sent the asiprations of the tribe down the drain.

At least Tania Martin gets awarded costs (again). However we have learned that Martin hasn’t been paid for the time she has spent on the governance review committee. We know that Te Arataura members got paid on time, and now we hear that Carmen Kirkwood has made a stand and refused to accept her own payments until fellow member Martin gets paid.

The amounts we are talking about here are trivial when compared to millions spent on Chapmann Tripp rip-offs, and Tuku Morgan’s five star lifestyle -they always get paid for first! There are no prizes for guessing who is behind these and many other deliberate refusals to cough up the cash -in spite of being told to by the judges and Te Kauhanganui -the tribal CEO Parekawhia Patsy Mclean -thats who!

Update: We have since learned that Patsy Mclean won’t pay Martin for her time spent on committees because Martin hasn’t filled her details on the right word template, apparently. It’s taken an entire year for Mclean to come up with such a rubbish excuse despite other members NOT having to use such a document. Remember, Parekawhia Mclean is on record as saying that she “Won’t muck around with the organization”. Whatever Patsy!

The CEO is doing this to restrict Martin’s income while at the same time Tuku Morgan and Chapmann Trip are forcing Martin into endless rounds of litigation with the stated aim of causing the Te Kauhanganui chairwoman to run into bankruptcy.

    i am not sure whether i know enough to make a comment but money has always been one of the root of evil, because its not really the money, but the way the money is being spent and yes someone or somebody should be held accountable for the spending of the money of Tainui. where does the name Te Arataura come from and what does it mean.

    The rope has been frayed and desperately needs repair.
    But fear not people, there are two individuals i have heard that are
    desperately trying to save our ruined kingdom from the bottomless void it is travelling into and i believe them to be trustworthy.

    A just cause is what i see in them and a righteous calling to the heart of Kiingitanga’s problems.

    Never give up hope, people i have heard are working in the background trying there absolute hardest NOT to let our Kingdom be destroyed.

    I shall send more updates as i hear them but until then take care everyone

    Pai Marire….

    I hope the Arataura members pay dearly for what they have done and the king is an embarrassment to the kahui ariki and to all Maori. He said at the poukai yesterday that he’s putting an end to Kauhanganui and he has told us that we marae are not allowed to go to the next Kauhanganui meeting. He is the custodian of the tribal assets and he is allowed to dissolve Kauhanganui because his lawyers told him he can do this. He said he is going to take over Kauhanganui with a new start. He will destroy everything. He and his wife are shameful. Hope our Kauhanganui chair does something about this whole mess. Someone has to.

    At hopeful, there is only one King and one kingdom which is where everyone is destined to go when it’s their time. You need to take a serious look at yourself because you are really hopeful if you think our next generations are going to follow a greedy king who gets by on raupatu money. Kingitanga was not established for the king and arataura members and tuku morgan to have a kingdom while our people stay pohara and rawakore. What goes around comes around. The writing is definitely on the wall for the king, for tuku morgan and arataura.
