  1. Was this photo even taken in Wairoa? Doesn’t look like it!! Also, Matariki celebrations in Wairoa are at night – these photos are not!. It seems that, yet again, the little town that many of us call ‘home’ has been slammed again. That’s worse than the t.v. networks that showed footage from the 80’s for a news article in the late 90’s.; I wish the media would stop doing that…journo’s need to get a real s story with real photos!!!

    1. Diss our Home town and cant wait to put up negative shit about YROA make sure you get the right photo of our community not some random pix. do your home work Oryan.
