Disappointing, yet predictable

NZ Herald

News in the Herald this morning of poor accountability over a failed school classroom build in Kaikohe.

“A spokesman said changes in 2007 meant school build projects were now led by a professional project manager.

The project manager for the 2005 work was Hone Mutu, then a senior staff member at the school and husband of then-principal Deborah Mutu.

Of $986,926 of classroom funding, $232,150 was spent to commission designs for a new gymnasium and pool complex with a value of around $4 million which was never built.”

That name Hone Mutu rings a bell.

Could it be the same Hone Mutu employed at a Kaikohe School that faced charges from a Disciplinary Tribunal relating to inappropriate conduct with students (discussing sexual experiences, kissing a student);

and whose wife, the Principal of the Kaikohe School, tore up the complaint?

and who were both deregistered as teachers?

I guess one kind of bent begets another kind of bent.
