From Morning Report, 7:18 am on 5 October 2023

Te Pati Maori says an elderly pakeha man has been trespassed after he entered the home of Te Pati Maori candidate Hana-Rawhiti Maipi-Clarke.

Māori Party president, John Tamihere, says Ms Maipi-Clarke's home was entered unlawfully yesterday morning, and it is clear the incident was politically motivated.

The newcomer Hana-Rawhiti Maipi-Clarke is standing in Hauraki-Waikato, and is just 20 years old.

It is the latest in what is a string of incidents reported by her.

Tamihere spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
