Native Affairs - Chump Change

By Native Affairs

When the former Māori Affairs Minister, Labour MP Parekura Horomia passed away earlier this year, his death came as a major wake-up call for his Parliamentary colleagues.

Now fellow MP Nanaia Mahuta is leading the charge to honour Parekura through an exercise programme called ‘Chump Change’.  It's helping make our Parliamentarians leaner and meaner while raising funds for kids with cancer.

As reporter Jodi Ihaka found, it's a kaupapa that's bringing together a cross section of unexpected political alliances.
