Kelvyn Alp To Contest Te Tai Tokerau By-Election

OurNZ Party’s Kelvyn Alp To Contest Te Tai Tokerau By-Election


Kelvyn Alp is no stranger to Maori issues having used a Maori passport issued by “The Maori Government of Aotearoa” twice in 2001 to enter the Solomon Islands. The then Labour Government, quick to bring an end to the facilitation of the passport, is said to have threatened to pull much needed aid from the Solomon Islands.

Kelvyn is also set to target what he called the fiasco surrounding the issues related to Te Tiriti O Waitangi 1840 and The Declaration of Independence 1835. He says “it’s pretty clear cut what should have been in place. Not only are the devious practices and sleight of hand tactics of the so-called “crown” entity responsible, but also the pathetic nature of some Maori that have in effect, sold their souls and dragged their people down with them”.

He further states “If there is one thing I do know for certain, the whole Maori versus Non-Maori myth is nothing more than a perpetrated action to ensure a continued divide. Anyone trying to play that card is quite frankly off their rockers. If you want to know the name of the real enemy then you need look no further than the crown.

When asked what he had to say to anyone that would question his not being from the area he is to contest, he replied “I believe all representatives to date have been from the area, so how has that worked out for you all so far? You either want solutions or you want egos. I am not aligned to any particular Hapu or Iwi, so can serve all equally. I also know probably more about the system and how it really operates than those that will also contest”.

He says his white skin means nothing to anyone with half a brain and the ability to think. “The system has no skin colour, yet because it was rammed down your throats by “white men”, you will naturally believe it’s the white man’s fault. That is so far off the mark, those that hold that view have left the planet. The system is the enemy and we all suffer from that common enemy. Unfortunately, all of your representatives to date just don’t get it, so how the hell are they going to help you?”

“It’s about time this country grew up and admitted that not only is it in one hell of a legal mess in terms of the “crown” position, but also needs to come clean to the rest of the nation as to the divide and conquer tactics that have been employed for so many years to conceal the truth” Mr. Alp also says this is about what is right and what needs to be brought to the public attention.

He says he looks forward to the support of all intelligent Maori that will now finally have the opportunity to see the talk walked and not the continuation of lip service as has been evident to date.

OURNZ Party’s other interim Co-leader is Rangitunoa Black.
