Hone Harawira's dalliance with Kim Dotcom and his new Internet Party has got commentators and Mana members scratching their heads as to what the benefits would there be for the political mavericks. On Kia Korero Mai this Saturday, Eru Morgan will talk with a long time observer of the political scene, Henare Kingi, on what might be going on, whether Hone's talks with the big German internet entrepreneur are likely to burn off key party members like Sue Bradford, and the direction Mana is heading with the election less than six months away.
On Sunday in Kia Korero Mai, Eru talks to Wharehoka Wano, an education management consultant, on the National Centre of Literacy and Numeracy's plan for a series of hui to help it develop a Maori strategy. Wharehoka says even though NCEA results are improving, there are still too many Maori school leavers and adults who don't have the necessary skills in reading, writing and counting to contribute fully. He says in many cases Maori parents can best help their children by upgrading their own literacy levels, and they should stop being whakama and sign up for the courses that are available
Korero Mai Ki Ahau a half hour features programme every Saturday and Sunday from noon, which takes an in – depth look at issues affecting te ao Maori. Totally in te reo Maori brought to you by Waatea News in association with Te Mangai Paho.
