Verse of The Day
“Otiia i a ia e hurihuri ana i enei mea, na, ka puta moemoea mai tetahi anahera a te Ariki ki a ia, ka mea, E Hohepa, e te tama a Rawiri, kaua e hopohopo ki te tango i a Meri, i tau wahine; na te Wairua Tapu hoki tona hapu. A e whanau ia he tama, me hua e koe tona ingoa ko IHU: no te mea mana e whakaora tona iwi i o ratou hara.” (Matthew 1:20-21)

The two men have been stood down from office while the trust's audit sub-committee investigates their activities.

Beneficiaries of the Northland hapu learned about the inquiry into payments to the trust's top two officials at a meeting in Maungaturoto on Saturday where it was disclosed the Renaissance Group - which manages assets from Te Uri o Hau's $15.6 million Treaty settlement - is insolvent.
