rongo wetere, the head of te wananga, has called out ken shirly over his allegations of misuse of funds.
wetere says his fiance did not sell a cuban literacy program to te wananga.
wetere says some staff enrolled in a program to evaluate it, but that no funding was claimed for those enrollments.
wetere has challenged shirley to repeat his allegations outside parliament.
this emphatic denial of the most emotive/polarising of the allegations; coming on top of the stretched ford LTD’s, (that didn’t actually exist), makes me wonder just how much of a beat up this whole story is.
