    Dunedin's mayor has offered his condolences at the death of former Ngai Tahu CEO Tahu Potiki

    Dunedin's mayor has offered his condolences at the death of former Ngai Tahu CEO Tahu Potiki


    Potiki died on Tuesday evening.

    He was diagnosed with end-stage liver disease in 2014 but the cause of his death is yet to be shared.

    Mayor Dave Cull says Potiki was a long-time cultural advisor to Council.

    He says he'd often call upon his wealth on knowledge and experience - and his staunch yet mellow persona will be greatly missed.
