The leader of Destiny Church, Brian Tamaki, says there will be violent uprisings in prisons across the country if the church's Man Up programme isn't implemented by Corrections. In a tweet on Monday, Mr Tamaki said the church will use private visits to inmates to cause revolts if access to the programme continues to be denied by the government. The Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, says it is irresponsible to incite violence in the prison system. Brian Tamaki joins us now from Australia.
