Te Mato Vai project Needs to be Investigated

Written by Florence Tia Syme-Buchanan

Calls for a full and independent commission of inquiry into the highly controversial  Te Mato Vai project have been renewed by Shadow Infrastructure minister William Heather.

Heather says there should be a thorough investigation into the project from inception, paid for visits to China by government personnel, the failed work pipe laying by contracted Chinese company CCECC and unsuitable materials it provided, relaying of pipes, budget over-runs from budget top ups and cost over-runs exceeding $100 million.

“There was also the failure to accept expert advice from a resident NZ qualified engineer contracted by TMV,” says Heather.  “This is one of the largest and most expensive projects ever undertaken in the  Cook Islands. Kilometres of newly laid pipes have had to be dug up again and replaced,further damaging the newly sealed roads, power and phone utilities in its wake. It’s a mess that our axpayers have to pay for.”

Heather says the government’s intention to install water meters for the purpose of charging water is contrary to promises made at the outset that residential properties wouldn’t be charged for water.  “This is another form of tax on the people and will surely bring economic hardship to our people many of whom who are already struggling.”

The government’s plan to use chemicals to chlorinate the public water supply was never made public at the outset, says Heather. He added with little or no public consultation shaping public policy for the proposed  water charges and water chemical chlorination,there is growing public outrage and opposition to the disastrous outcomes from the Te Mato Vai project.

Both deputy leader of the Democratic Party Terepai Maoate and leader Tina Browne also made strong calls for a commission of inquiry in 2018 and 2019 respectively. The government has remained silent on that demand by the two Democratic Opposition leaders.

Cook Islands shadow health minister supports helmets for all

Written by Florence Tia Syme-Buchanan

Cook Islands shadow Health minister Sel Napa says she has always been in favour of compulsory helmets for all and stands by her decision to vote in support of the Transport Amendment Act that will see this come into effect later this month.

“I made a vote that my conscience told me to, I made a vote as a mother, aunty and member of a vibrant community and Parliament who wants our people to be safer driving on the roads, there are more arguments supporting compulsory helmets than there are against, so I stand by that decision.”

“I have looked into the weeping eyes of a mother who has lost her only daughter and seen the terrible anguish and loss. I have heard the eulogy presented by another mother for her only child, a son killed in a motorbike accident and felt her incredible loss. Over the years I’ve seen couples weep, families in anguish for their loved ones who have died on the roads, most of them from head trauma. I stand by the vote I made in favour of helmets for all. I believe it is the right thing to do.”

It has been reported that Rarotonga has the second highest road traffic deaths per capita in the world. Motorcycle accidents is the most common cause. Most have died from head trauma.

“The helmet issue has been around since 2007, the fatalities from motorcycle accidents in that time should be enough to tell us all that we can’t go backwards to the previous situation where helmets were only compulsory for those aged 16 to 25, it simply didn’t work,” says Napa.

“I am also reassured by the support of many in my constituency who support the compulsory helmet law, sadly we have all been touched in some way by the loss of a loved one on our roads and believe in making our motorcyclists safer.”

“I agree with our Cook Islands Democratic Party leader Tina Browne that alcohol and speeding are also huge factors that need to be urgently addressed.”

Earlier this year Leader Browne stated that the reducing the alcohol limit is a good idea, for instance New Zealand has a zero-alcohol limit for drivers under 20 and is something which should also implemented here.

Browne said defensive driving courses and establishing progressive licensing stages such as learners, restricted and finally a full license should all be considered as well. Learners and restricted license holders have night time driving curfews and strict laws about driving passengers. “The night time motorbike curfew could apply to learners and restricted license holders.”

“But this is only part of the solution. Enforcement and implementation are other aspects that we need to address.  The Police department needs to be honestly and proactively looking at its operations and staffing and asking whether there is a capacity problem in the Police force,” said Browne.

She pointed out that is little point in passing laws if Police don’t have the capacity to enforce the laws meant to make our roads safer.

Nikao Social Center becomes the home for the Nikao Market

Written by Tauraki Rongo

After the Nikao Social Center was destroyed by cyclone Sally in 1987, the name carried on. People including locals continue to ask why it was called the Social centre. At least for some people the concrete floor was there as solid evidence where they can begin telling their own version of the story.

The solid concrete floor of the Social Center is still being used today. It is now the floor for  the Nikao Market

Last Thursday however, the place became the location for the first ever Nikao Market.  The committee chaired by former Cook Islands radio and television broadcasting head Emile Kairua says the new market provides a revenue stream for the Mamas and Papas of the Village who were heavily impacted by the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic like many others in the country. While the country is Covid-19 free, the economy is still down due to the borders being closed. Therefore says Kairua, people need income, and this is one way to hit back at the pandemic.

First time vendors setting up the first ever Nikao Market

According to one of the committee members Pa Matapo, the day was a real success as the food was sold out and the market attracted passersby. They have taken away some learning from this first day says Matapo, and look to grow the market for next week. He says they see a lot of potential at this location which basically caters for the town and the western side of the island.

The Punanganui market opens on Saturday Morning while the Ngatangiia night market opens a few nights a week. Taking on the challenge Matapo says they have a simple motto in Nikao “Bring it on, Slow and steady

Democratic Party Supports China but only on the Virus Stigmatization Issue

Written by Florence Syme-Buchanan

Democratic Party Opposition leader Tina Browne says she will stand by the statement issued by the Republic of China ministry of Foreign Affairs that countries, including the Cook Islands agree to “…oppose any attempt at stigmatization, politicizing or labeling the virus, support the leading role of the World Health Organization in promoting global cooperation against COVID-19, and strive for an early victory in the fight against the disease.”

“But at the same time, I don’t believe that in joining that agreement, necessarily means we support the one-China principle. That China wants partnerships with Pacific Island countries elevated to a new height post Covid-19 by “exploring new ways and tapping new potentials of cooperation to bring about greater progress in China-Pacific Island countries relations” should be approached and handled with utmost caution,” says Browne.

“We need to protect what few resources we have, our ocean fisheries, our seabed minerals to absolutely benefit our own people, not some other country with its own vast and diverse resources.”

Browne who was not part of the video-link meeting between China and 10 Pacific Island countries including the Cook Islands says the Cook Islands should support a thorough investigation into how, where and why Covid-19 originated.

“I don’t believe that the time to be talking about and possible elevation of relations with China is now when we are fighting to keep our paradise free of Covid-19 and the rest of the globe is battling the virus and suffering its effects on populations the world over.”

“I also don’t want to think that China has chosen this time to hold talks with Pacific Island countries when we are all very vulnerable and our economies are in recession. But it would appear that China is attempting an ill-timed public relations exercise and trying to drum up support from Pacific Island countries in readiness for its future plans in the region.”

Keeping Active and Keeping Young with Papa Tai Lindsay

Written by Kathleen Lindsay

Cook Island born Papa Vaine-Tutai-O-Noo Lindsay known to family and friends as ‘Papa’ is enjoying life at 80 years old. Living in his home in Orakei Auckland for close to 45 years that he shared with his late wife Kathleen Lindsay (née Ioaba-Tamarua) whom are very well known locals. Papa is always on the go and still continues part-time employment for a local community led network called Resource Rescue a Social Enterprise in Tamaki. Since arriving here in 1964 he still enjoys doing what he loves best, being around his family and friends and always keeping physically busy. His secret he vows at keeping young.

Pictured: Papa (centre) with younger Brother Tere and nephew John Lindsay (his right)

Raised knowing how to fix cars a teaching passed down from his late father papa Moo Lindsay of Ruatonga in Rarotonga who himself was a capable man around the 1940s was well known on the island as a self born car mechanic, fisherman and musician a trait papa Moo travelled with from his homeland of Tahiti.

Papa Tai working as a young boy in the fields of the taro patch, living off the land and sea was his upbringing. Therefore, family is everything so the future to him is of upmost important for generations to come.

Papa a devoted family man sought a way in finding something to do in his spare time so joined the team at Resource Rescue in 2018. Physically fit and still sharp in his golden age found an opportunity through his daughter Josephine who works for The Glen Innes Family Centre a community support group who rightfully own Resource Rescue. The initiative around this is a response to the large number of appliances and machinery being recovered through Auckland Council’s inorganic collection.

The aim is to give appliances another chance at life by reducing waste to landfill and recycling of items, whilst also creating local led volunteer training opportunities and providing low-cost appliances for low income households. Items are brought back to the warehouse in Pt England (which is the border area between Glen Innes and Panmure) where the Zero Waste network team are responsible for distributing the items for community benefit. We are not a walk-in facility like a shop all our items are sold on trade me. Resource Rescue became official around the 2nd Nov 2015. We currently have a small team of volunteer service technicians which include his youngest daughter Kathleen who manages the team and administration duties. Papa has assisted in training youth and volunteers at fixing and dismantling mainly lawn mowers and weedeaters. He hopes to see more of our Cook island people encouraged in assisting with what he says as ‘taking care of our enua’. Papa Tai known for his humble nature but certain wiff of cheek and wit has adapted a favourite saying; ‘you people cant buy another one in the shop’ (in this instance meaning the land, our Mother Earth). He believes minimizing waste and adapting this as a new norm to everyones daily life assists in keeping our earth from further deterioration. ‘Caring for the land is our last hope especially when times get hard’ something that come to surface during this covid19 shutdown period, so we must take care of what we have been given for the future of our mokopuna.

He gives thanks to GIFC (Glen Innes Family Centre) for the work opportunity and Zerowaste Network for their general support. Also Waste Management for providing the team with operational space.
