Smear Job: Tania Martin

Here’s the report of the police investigation that ROBIN WHANGA initiated, with the full assistance of TUKU MORGAN, TE ARATAURA, and CHAPMANN TRIP -paid for in full by the people of the Waikato Iwi.

The whole aim of this outrageous exercise was to lay BASELESS allegations which were not supported by any facts, against Tania Martin because she dared question the excessive spending done by Tuku and his Te Arataura mob.

Yet another example of what is wrong at ‘Tainui’ when a few criminals abuse the resources of the entire tribe in an effort to destroy one person.

Re Complaint into Financial Mismanagement at Hiona Marae

Dear Sir

On 6 May 2011 you met with Detective Inspector PACE and discussed with him a complaint that you had in respect of alleged financial mismanagement by those involved with the affairs of the Hiona Marae. However, it is clear that the subject of this complaint is at Ms Tania Martin who I understand was the former chair of Te Kauhanganui (Waikato Tainui Parliament) and who has been somewhat outspoken in relation to some matters within the Kingitanga and in particular she has been critical of spending within Te Arataura the parliament’s executive board.

Ms Martin is the representative of the Hiona Marae.

In addition after that meeting you subsequently provided a box of documents to the Police which were relevant to this complaint. More

Tuku Morgan and Rahui Papa drag Te Arataura further into the gutter with their unethical investigations and scum behaviour!

In an act of pure desperation, Morgan and Papa have approached relatives of Tania Martin at their homes in an effort to ‘dig up the dirt’ on the Te Kauhanganui chairwoman.

On more than one occasion they were told to “F&$k off!” (just like the king’s language).

Mr Morgan and Mr Papa have since ceased to continue these ‘home invasions’.


It’s not just Te Kauhanganui and the executives having all the fun -the lawyers who were feeling a bit left out have decided to get in on some of the action too! Fascinating stuff!

Update from Turangawaewae Marae

Kauhanganui letter sent by Charles Joe

Tonight residents of Turangawaewae Marae had their opinion heard and voted  to confirm their support of current Te Kauhanganui chairperson Tania Martin.

Turangawaewae Marae has overwhelmingly approved of Mrs. Martin’s plans to audit and cap the excessive spending habits of Tainui’s Te Arataura executive board headed by Tuku Morgan.

Mrs. Martin has stated that she proposes to bring transparency, accountability and fairness when dealing with Tainui’s financial affairs.

Attempts by Te Arataura to have Mrs. Martin disqualified because of errors in her November 2010 report to Te Kauhanganui were strongly rejected at tonight’s meeting.
