Te Waonui a Te Manu Korihi for 17 August 2014

From Te Manu Korihi, 8:00 pm on 15 August 2014

Te Waonui presents highlights of the Maori news of the week produced by the Manu Korihi team. On the show this week: A majority of Tuhoe tribal members have accepted the apology from the Police Commissioner for the way the Urewera raids were carried out, but we hear from Mere Nuku, who hasn't accepted the apology; An alliance between the commercial arms of Ngai Tahu and Tainui has led to the them buying the passenger transport company Go Bus for a total of 171-million dollars; The race for the urban Maori seat of Tamaki Makaurau is on; A Far North iwi leader is accusing oil drilling protesters, including kaumatua, of thuggery and bullying tactics after a workshop with oil company officials was abruptly hijacked; The Maori Party has errected or is in the process of putting up nine campaign billboards at Marae, which has surprised a history professor at the Auckland University of Technology.
