Goff expresses sadness for victims of Waiouru explosion
Labour Leader Phil Goff has expressed his condolences to the families and friends of military personnel killed or injured in today’s explosion at Waiouru Army Base.
“As a former Minister of Defence, I am well aware of the dangers that our military personnel face every day.” Phil Goff said.
“These dangers also apply during military exercises. Our military personnel know these dangers, but that does not lessen tragedies such as the one that occurred today.
“My heart goes out to the families and friends of the victims of the explosion.”
