Open Letter to All Tribal Members of Waikato Tainui
Open Letter to All Tribal Members of Waikato
I have asked my Office to ensure this
letter gets to as many Waikato Tainui tribal members as
possible, knowing the limitations of time and contact
information available to them many of you may not get a
copy, therefore I apologize. To those of you who wish to,
please make contact with my office and we can then get one
sent to you. My aim for this letter is to communicate to as
many of you as I can my recent decisions in relation to the
upcoming Kauhanganui & Te Arataura meetings scheduled for
the 25th November and December 2012. My wish is that you
will all gain an understanding of what is happening based on
what I have been exposed to and engaged in regarding these
long drawn out issues. Let me start with “My Review”
which I present to you point by point.

South African President Jacob Zuma:
Our beloved Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, the founding President of our democratic nation has departed. He passed on peacefully in the company of his family around 20h50 on the 5th of December 2013.
He is now resting. He is now at peace.
Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father. Although we knew that this day would come, nothing can diminish our sense of a profound and enduring loss.
His tireless struggle for freedom earned him the respect of the world. His humility, his compassion, and his humanity earned him their love. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Mandela family. To them we owe a debt of gratitude.
They have sacrificed much and endured much so that our people could be free. More>>
