Wena Harawira has rejoined Native Affairs as a reporter. Her TV experience includes reporting, producing and presenting for Te Kāea and Anzac Day and extends to print, radio and a range of government, corporate and independent companies. Her main aim is to one day be paid by her children to look after her mokopuna - no luck with that so far.
