Kua huri tuara te kaunihera o Reipa ki te tono a Taurima

Kua tū ngā pihi o te Kaunihera Māori me te komiti whakarite a te Rōpū Reipa ki Tāmaki Makaurau i te korenga o Shane Taurima e whai whakaae i a Reipa hei kaitono mōna.  

Hei tā Phillips states, "the kaunihera Māori are very disappointed that the NZ Council were minded not to approve the waiver. We had reps in that meeting and it was a very clear messaging that our reps look to approve the waiver.”

I hui te kaunihera o Reipa inapō me te aha, i ākiritia te tono whakawātea e whai mana ai te tono kaitono a Taurima, ā, tanuku ana te whai a te kaipāpāho o mua i te tūru o Tāmaki Makaurau.  

E ai ki te heamana o te kaunihera Māori o te rōpū Reipa, kua kaha tautoko te kaunihera, me te nuinga o ngā mema Māori i te tono a Shane Taurima hei kaitono mō Tāmaki Makaurau, engari ki ngā kauhanganui o te whare miere, he wairua rerekē.

Hei tā Daivid Cunliffe, “I think he needs to reflect upon the situation and reflect upon his actions and take some responsibility for them.”

I rere ngā hau kōrero ka tono atu a Julian Wilcox mō tāua turanga, engari e ai ki a Whakaata Māori, ka noho ia hei kaiwhakahaere mō te tari News and Current Affairs.

Heoi kua tō te rā ki a Shane Taurima i tēnei wā me tana wawata kia puta ki tēnei whare, ā hei te taite ka whakamohio atu te rōpū reipa o rātou whakatau kia huakina ano, kaore rānei ngā tono mō Tāmaki Makaurau.
