Today I received the email below headed Act of Treason
"My whanau express the latest media acts by those few who dont
understand the democratic process as inciting treason. Accordingly
they have sent Mark an email expressing their support for him. They
also state that the focus placed on the Kaiwhakahaere in the media
seems to be a strategy of discrediting him.
These few minority, need to understand not everyone is as uninformed
as they are.
In addition, for Awarua to send out a petition asking iwi members to
put pen to paper and ask for Mr Solomans removal shows how insidious
the lengths the minority few will go to. OOps did this go to the
So whanau, speak out, show how you find this unacceptable
unprofessional manner in which these few are presenting themselves.
We know better, we are better.
