Te Wānanga ō Aotearoa Chief Executive Bentham Ohia is resisting a board effort to replace him and has reapplied for his job.

The largest Māori tertiary institution had advertised for a replacement for Mr Ohia, who took the role in 2005 after wānanga founder Rongo Wetere was forced out by Labour Education Minister Trevor Mallard.

Students and staff petitioned Mr Ohia to reapply, and there were demonstrations in support of him at several campuses.

Local body elections heating up
WILLIE JACKSON: The race for the Auckland mayoralty and also council seats are heating up as the October polling day draws nearer and major political parties start infiltrating their members to these boards.
Fabulous Rio
WILLIE JACKSON: I have just finished staying eight days and nights in Rio De Janeiro and I can confirm that I am still alive!  Which might surprise some people given the terrible publicity that we have seen from the media here and internationally.  I can also confirm that I never saw or felt a mosquito, didn’t get mugged, maimed or shot at, drank the water, used the public toilets, walked down lots of side streets and talked to plenty of strangers.
