Tumunu - Bulletin Board of the Cook Islands

Last update: December 21 2016
This is a free, moderated service for Cook Islanders or others to post notices and to discuss subjects of relevance to the Cook Islands. Publication is at the whim and prejudices of the Brewmaster. Maori must be accompanied by an English translation. On any contentious or personal matter you will need to include your e-mail address. No messages will be published if received in capitals only or in lower case letters only or in abbreviated 'text speak'. Material will be edited if overlong, ungrammatical or boring. Postings will be kept until deemed no longer current (usually 30 days). E-mail

Note: Click here for Bereavement Notices and Condolences.

Brewmaster: Please note that we will not publish messages which are not punctuated or those written in 'stream-of-consciousness' style with phrases separated only by a series of full stops. They take too much time to sub-edit and render into English. Also, note the guidelines above concerning Maori and capital letters.

I know this subject has been raised before but nothing has developed yet. What is the matter with our Government? Why can no-one see that encouraging Kiwis to retire to the Cook Islands would bring large sums of mpney here. Henry Puna and his disciples keep rambling on about our declining population. Well, for heaven's sake do something about it! Since Cook Islanders are automatically citizens of New Zealand our Government should put some pressure on the new Minister for Pacific Peoples in New Zealand (a Cook Islander!) to allow Kiwis to bring their pensions here. They would provide very useful funds into this country as well as stimulating investment in better medical care for all. If it cannot be done at least explain why. Get with it Puna! Kuki Boy.

I too am shocked and dismayed hearing of the sharp decline of the Muri lagoon. Kuki Boy and Ben, please start a movement, with a dedicated website, to get the lagoon back in top shape. That is my retirement destination, my precious lagoon. Steve K.
