Tainui Hits Back - The Tainui Trust Board is defending its decision to buy the naming rights to the new Waikato Sports Stadium. The tribe’s $7 million deal includes the condition that local Maori will make up 20 percent of those employed during events at the stadium. Mauri Pacific MP and Tainui member Tukoroirangi Morgan says the money would have been better spent on housing. But Tainui says before pointing his finger at the tribe’s trust board Mr Morgan should look at his own responsibilities. The Tainui Trust Board says its decision is a calculated one and is wise and will improve employment opportunities for the tribe’s people.
