King warns Tainui is on "edge of abyss"
|05 Dec 2012 12:35 PM|
King Tuheitia has written a second open letter to his people, warning that Waikato-Tainui is at the edge of a political abyss.
The king’s first letter calling on a change in the tribe’s leadership may have tipped the scales against the chair of the tribal parliament, Tania Martin, who was voted out last month.
This latest letter comes on the eve of the tribe’s annual meeting, when the positions on the executive Te Ara Taura will be on the line.
King Tuheitia says those who want to hold the tribe to ransom are using anonymous websites to hurl abuse at him, his family, his staff and anyone who disagrees with them.
He says that’s a sign of how badly things have broken down and are in need of repair.
The king also slammed commentators who attempt to draw on Pakeha history to criticize what is happening in Tainui.
