Tumunu - Bulletin Board of the Cook Islands

Last update: December 9 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 Postings will be kept until deemed no longer current (usually 30 days).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 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.

Yes Ben, there is something desperately wrong with our Government. I see that the ex-Minister of Marine Resources is appealing his jail sentence of three years for corruption for taking money from some fishing company. Isn't this the same Minister who once took a bag of coins out in a boat on Aitutaki lagoon and threw it over the side because the coins had an image of Tangaroa on the back? He didn't like that because Tangaroa was an 'idol'! It would have been all right though if the image had been Jesus. Kuki Boy.

What? There is only one person out of the country at present (IMPORTANT person that is) and guess who it is? Yes, that's right, it's Playboy Henry. And where is he? In a place of enormous importance to the Cook Islands - Morocco. Most of the people in the Cook wouldn't even know where Morocco is. But Henry does. He'll tell us all about it when he gets back.

In the past week three different Kiwis have told me that they were shocked and very disappointed by the state of the water in the lagoon at Muri. Dirty and nasty looking. Come on Henry! Why don't you bend your tiny mind towards this problem instead of jaunting around the world all the time. This has huge repercussions for our tourist income. What is wrong with the Government? Ben T.
