Southland mayor doesn't want Destiny leaders in region

From First Up, 5:49 am on 5 March 2021

Do not pass go. Do not collect 200 dollars. Or any dollars at all. That's the message from Southland's mayor to Destiny Church leaders Hannah and Brian Tāmaki whom he says are not welcome in his region. Gary Tong says if leaving Auckland under the cover of darkness to avoid the level three lockdown wasn't bad enough, news that Brian Tāmaki avoided lockdown to actually go on a hunting trip is 'doing his head-in'. It comes as the couple fronted for two radio stations at the same time last night offering two very different versions of events. Matthew Theunissen was listening to both.
