Eastern Bay of Plenty iwi Te Whānau ā Apanui is considering closing off its borders to stop the spread of Covid-19.

Raukokore chair Willie Te Aho says the idea will be discussed by the 12 hapū this afternoon.

He says to protect kaumatua, people will be able to travel through but not stay.

The prohibition will even apply to tribal members like himself who live outside the rohe which is why he is joining the hui by Zoom technology.

"I’m urging that they go stronger and actually block our borders and reinforce this on our tribal boundaries so people know clearly what's at stake for us in Te Whānau ā Apanui and the 12 hapū that reside there," Mr Te Aho says.
