Here is the original broadcast, with Maiki Sherman talking to Tūmamao Harawira on Manako on 31/03/19. Only the first part of the interview is included here (three and a half minutes).

And here is my summary of the edited broadcast. The script for this is below.

 

Tēnā koutou. He wāhanga iti noa iho tēnei o te kōrero a Maiki Sherman mō te Rā Maumahara i  Ōtautahi mō ngā tāngata i whakamatea i reira. E ai ki a Maiki, he wā hūmarie, he wā i rongona ai te aroha o te motu ki ngā Ihirama, otirā i rongona hoki te mamae o ngā whānau, o te hapori Ihirama i reira.He kino te pā mai o ngā mahi kino a te tangata whakatumatuma (kāore i tukua e Maiki tana ingoa).

Tā Tūmamao, i kitea i reira te aroha o te motu nei ki ngā Ihirama, ā, nā Maiki i whakaae. Nāna i tuku mihi hoki ki te pirimia a Jacinda Ardern mō tana arahi i a tātou o te motu whānui kia tuku aroha ki a rātou ko ngā Ihirama. Ko Jacinda te māngai, ā, he nui ngā mihi ki tukua e te ao whānui mō ana mahi pai i tēnei wā pōuri rawa atu.
