Ka noho pea a Maungawhau hei wāhi motuka-kore ki te tau pērā atu te whakatau a te rōpū tiaki i ngā Maunga Tūpuna o Tāmaki Makaurau i tēnei rā, engari tērā ngā āwangawanga a te iwi tūmatanui mō te rāhui.
I timata te whakakaupapahanga o te rāhui i te tau rua māno tekau mā tahi i te aukatinga ake o ngā waka nui, pahi tūruhi hoki, ā, ka pēnātia anō pea ngā waka iti.
According to a bystander, “The elderly and the disabled should have a special dispensation to drive their people up and drop them off. For the abled body I think it’s a lovely walk up here and when you walk up here it’s such a lovely reward.”
Another bystander says, “My mum who is 97 in June, there’s no way that she would of been able to get up here, so it’s very important it stays open.”
E hiahia ana te Mana Whakahaere Tupuna Maunga ki te whakatū kia rua ngā kēti hiko, e mate ai te tangata ki te hikoi i te rua rau mita ki te tihi.
Ka hui te Mana Whakahaere a te pō nei, ā, akuanei puta ai te whakatau mō Maungawhau.
