Kei te hiahia tētahi māngai Māori mō ngā take whare kia tautikahia ai e te kāwanatanga te ratonga whare papori, ā kia riro mā Te Puni Kokiri te ratonga e arataki. Koinei te whakahau a Victoria Kingi o te Manatōpū o Mangatawa Pāpāmoa ki ngā tāngata rua rau te nui i te hui a motu mo ngā take whare i tū ki Tauranga i te rā nei.
E toru tekau neke atu ngā whanau māori kei ngā whare I Mangatawa nei, engari he ara uaua te whakatutuki.
Kingi says, “We have multiple agencies involved in housing and we need to see better collaboration and alignment across the agencies in terms of their strategies.”
Ko Te Kaporeihana Whare me Te Puni Kokiri etahi rōpū e tautoko ana I ngā kaupapa whare a te Māori.
“I think TPK is a natural fit, I really do, I think they handled funding from the Social Housing network to Maori Housing network really.”
Hei tā te Minita take whare a Paula Bennett, “We are all in and what I mean is that what I do affects Maori housing I'm acutely aware of that.”
E ai ki nga tatauranga a Quotable Value, kua eke te wariu o ngā whare i Tauranga Moana ki te ono rau mano tāra.
“That's the only reason why we came back here, my wife is from here but she was passed away.”
He hononga whakapapa tā te hunga kainoho e noho pātata atu ana ki a Rangi ki te rōpū o Mangatawa Papamoa. Engari kaore a Bennett i te mōhio, mena rānei ka noho haneanea ia ki te Papakainga.
I pātai atu ki a Te Kāea ki a Minita Bennett, mehemea ka noho ia ki tētahi Whare Papakainga, ko tāna, “I'm not sure if would suit me right now, with my family but I don't know everyone is different.”
E ai ki a Bennett kua panoni haere ngā kaupapa here Māori o tana rōpū mai I te wa i a Don Brash.
“I just don't agree with Don Brash its old thinking and seems archaic and is ridiculous.”
Engari mo Rangi me ngā kainoho o Mangatawa, ka noho hāneanea te noho a ngā rā ki tua.
