Tata ki te rua tau a Bruce Smith me tana whānau e whawhai ana kia whakakorengia te mana whakahaere o Te Tumu Paeroa i tō rātou pāmū i te rua o Ruakituri. Ko tā Te Tumu Paeroa me wehe rātou i te pāmu ahakoa e ai ki te whānau, he ono tekau paiheneti ngā hea ō rātou.

Ko te urunga whakamutunga teenei ki te kooti, kia pupuri tonu ai te whanau Smith i tō rātou pāmū.

E ai ki te te tāmahin mataamua o Brue Smith a Cole Smith, “We haven't been treated fairly at all, there is a lot of things that are under the cover with this I'm not too sure what Te Tumu Paeroa is up to, we're not the only case that this happened to, it definitely needs to stop.”

Hei tā te kaiwhakahaere o te pāmu a Bruce Smith, “But as you can see today there's clearance in the air and yeah, I will put a spud patch down next spring.”

Taikaha ake nei te pakanga ki Te Tumu Paeroa, whai muri i te korenga o te riihi ki te whenua o Waipaoa 5a2 i te tau rua mano tekau mā whā. Na Te Tumu Paeroa te whakatau hou, kia rīhi ano ai te whenua nei ki nga kaipupuru hea tokoiti, a, kahore i aro ki te Whanau Smith, nga kaipupuri i nga hea ono tekau orau.

“Nowhere in the world does 40% beat 60% there are a lot of things that are underlying with this so it definitely needs to be uncovered and we're going to do our best to do that,” hei tā Cole Smith.

Hei ta Te Tumu Paeroa mo te painga o te katoa te whakatau ki te riihi, a, i aro hoki ki nga hea, ki nga hitori me te hononga a te Whānau Smith ki te whenua.

He whitu rau iwa tekau heketea te rahi o Waipaoa 5a2 i Ruakituri, a, he toru ngā whakatipuranga e mahi ana i tēnei pāmū.

“We're more wiser now and we'll be more active with how we approach including external parties in our land for the future,” hei tā Kreslea Smith.

E matapae ana, a tona rua wiki ka tae mai te whakatau a te kaiwhakawa.

I runga i enei ahuatanga kua kore Te Tumu Paeroa e whakaputa korero ano ki te take.
