Tena ano tatou katoa. This was due to be my last column for the Rotorua Daily Post for 2016, however I was advised they are not going to be publishing any further political columns this year, so I’ll publish it online instead. As it is my last article, it is appropriate to reflect over the year that’s been and think about the many people that we have lost. I must pay tribute to the many remarkable leaders who have left us. There were so many, and locally I think in particular of Fred Whata, of Hohi Porima, of Napi Waaka, my whanaunga Mita Hikairo Mohi, my tuara Awanui Black, too many to name this year - however I remember each of those that we lost for the footprints that they have left on te iwi Maori. Koutou i te po, e moe, e moe, haere. Whakangaro atu ra. Tatou te hunga ora e pae nei, tena koutou.
