Hunt continues for Vaka'uta

Auckland City Police want to speak to 22 year-old Bensemann Vakauta, in connection with the stabbing of a man in the central city earlier today.

He is urged to make contact with Police or present himself at a Police station.

That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
