Paakiwaha is an exciting weekly current affairs programme from a Māori perspective. Paakiwaha is hosted today by Dale Husband and broadcast by Radio Waatea with funding from New Zealand on Air.
On today’s show: Former Labour Party chief of staff turned political pundit and union organiser Matt McCarten discusses Māori TV's latest poll putting John Tamihere neck and neck with incumbent Peeni Henare in the race for Tāmaki Makaurau.
Peeni Henare talks polls, Tāmaki Makaurau and his race for re-election getting tighter.
