Te Reo Apology

Chong apologises about Te Reo comment

By Alan Tristram

New Plymouth Councillor Murray Chong has emailed the people who made formal complaints about his Facebook post saying he was sorry for the comments and any offence he had caused.

Mr Chong had suggested on Facebook that te reo Maori is ‘being kept alive on a respirator.’

He went on to say the comments were his personal view and had nothing to do with the council.
