Like every parliamentarian Mahuta has declared any conflicting interests in the Register of Pecuniary and Other Specified Interests of Members of Parliament, Nowhere in the video is there any implication that her sister Tipa Mahuta is not qualified for the position.


I think it’s worth highlighting Minister Nanaia Mahuta‘s reply when asked to comment on the piece.

The Minister has had no involvement in the appointment of family members.
The Minister ensures that no conflict exists or appears to exist between her personal interests and portfolio responsibilities, in accordance with the guidance in the Cabinet Manual.

Absolutely shocking. Pleased it has been made public. Mahuta needs to go or at least have some of her portfolios taken off her.

Who is getting paid off to enable this power grab? Maori like the rest of Polynesia are tribal so if one gains another loses. We have had peace for a long time. Now it appears they are throwing off the yoke which prevented their demise from unsavoury customs.
