Native Affairs Summer Series 2014 - Eviction

By Native Affairs , Renee Kahukura-Iosefa

Earlier this year the Omaka Marae committee in Blenheim served an eviction notice on an elderly couple.

They wanted the Cunnifes out of the kaumatua flat that they'd lived in for the past 16 years.

The decision has shocked the local community, with many questioning the actions of the committee.

Last July Renee Kahukura Iosefa went south to talk to the couple about their predicament.

Renee also joins Mihingarangi Forbes in studio to provide an update on this story and look back at 2014.
