Kua puta te whakatau a te Minita Hanga Whare a Nick Smith, ka hanga i ngā whare pāpori hou rima tekau mā iwa, ki te uru o Tāmaki Makaurau. Engari, ko tā te hapori i te tonga o Tāmaki, i tautoko te kaupapa o Te Kotahitanga o Ngā Waka Tū mō ngā Whānau Kore Kāinga ki Māngere, ehara tēnei i te rongoā mō ngā whānau e noho kainga kore ana.
He kotahi rau iwa tekau mā ono kainga i runga i ngā whenua karauna tāpiri ki te uru o Tāmaki, me te toru tekau ōrau kua tohua hei whare pāpori.
E ai ki te minita Minister Hanga Whare a Hon Nick Smith, “I will guarantee that with respect to those 59 houses specifically for Social Housing, will be for those families that have high housing need.”
Engari, ko tā te hapori ki te tonga o Tāmaki, i tautoko i te kaupapa o Te Kotahitanga o Ngā Waka Tū mō ngā Whānau Kore Kāinga ki Māngere, inapō, kāore te kāwanatanga i te whakapau wera ki te āwhina i te hunga e noho kainga kore ana i Tāmaki.
“It's like a sacrifice for our brothers and sisters out there, they don't have hope, and we pray in our heart that the government will help them as soon as possible,” hei tā tetahi kaitautoko a Sisifa.
“This is an epidemic, it needs to change. This is Aotearoa. Why are people in New Zealand experiencing this? It doesn't make sense to me. We are rich with the natural resources, we are rich with different services available,” hei tā tetahi kaitautoko a Casey Panapa.
He mea whakarite tēnei kaupapa nā ngā rōpū hapori, ki te tautoko i ngā whānau e noho ana i roto i ō rātou motuka, he porotēhi āio hoki ki te kāwanatanga. E whia rau tāngata i tautoko ā tinana atu.
Hei tā Panapa, “It's come to that point where we need to scream, yell and cry for people to hear.”
E ai ki a Siosioa he kaitautoko, “I feel sorry for them, and I wish if I could do something to live in homes instead of cars.”
Ko tā Nick Smith, he rīkota whā tekau ngā whare i Tāmaki kei te hangahanga ia rā mahi, wheoi, he maha ngā tōmuritanga, na te kaha hiahia te take.
“I am looking at every part of the supply chain, whether it be the resource consenting, the building consenting, the supply of land, to unblock every part of that supply chain,” hei tā Minister Nick Smith.
Ka tū ngā kaupapa o Te Kotahitanga o Ngā Waka Tū mō ngā Whānau Kore Kāinga e rua ki Pōneke me Otara i te tonga o Tāmaki, ā tērā rāhoroi.
