DCC contractor Black Power president Albert Epere and his crew all in jail

News came from ‘associates’ last week that all members of Mauri Kohatu Incorporated – contracted by Dunedin City Council to maintain some city greenspaces – were now in jail, including Black Power president Albert Epere.


The mayor and his council acolytes had previously put themselves on the record saying “the council supported social contracting”. Meaning Dunedin ratepayers were paying the gang members to continue their usual nefarious lifestyles.

Epere made at least four court appearances during the contract(s) period.

We note there has been no public statement from the city council since the jailings.
